3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

Force CombineVariants to treat all vcfs as single sample

edited December 2012 in Ask the GATK team

I am trying to merge two vcfs (SNVs and INDELs) from the same sample. The problem appears to be that the INDEL vcf defines "combined_sample_name" but the SNV vcf does not. So when I merge I get two sample columns. How can I force GATK to treat them as a single sample?

I tried --assumeIdenticalSamples to do a "simple merge," but that made no difference.

As a side note, these vcfs are from an Ion Torrent machine.

Thanks!

java -jar $GATK \
    -R $TSP_FILEPATH_GENOME_FASTA \
    -T CombineVariants \
    --assumeIdenticalSamples \
    -V:${baseFolderName} ${i}/SNP_variants.vcf \
    -V:${baseFolderName} ${i}/indel_variants.vcf \
    -o ${RESULTS_DIR}/${baseFolderName}_variants.vcf
