Which bundle should I use for bam files from Illumina's CASAVA pipeline?

I have bam files generated by Illumina's CASAVA pipeline, and the reference genome version in the accompanying document is 'NCBI37_UCSC'. The chromosomes are all named after UCSC hg19 convention, but 'NCBI37' part in the name confuses me. I'm not sure which bundle files should I use with these bam files, b37 or hg19.

    You should ask Illumina as they provided these files for you. You need to make sure that Illumina used a standard reference - and if not then they need to provide you with the necessary reference file(s).

    The reference files did come with the bam files. I'm just not sure whether they're from NCBI build or UCSC build. I hoped someone with much experience in handling Illumina data with GATK might help me to solve this problem.

    You should post in the Ask The Community section then. I've just moved this discussion there.
