It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!

Did you remember to?


1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
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.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


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

BQSR fails giving Malformed read

simonrasmusimonrasmu Member Posts: 6

Dear GATK Team,

I am running a pipeline on several high coverage human individuals that have been mapped using bwa and processed using samtools, picard and gatk. The bam-files pass ValidateSam from picard, but when I run the bqsr step some of them fails giving a Malformed read error (using -filterMBQ does not help in this case). I tracked down the error to bamfiles that ends with a paired end read where the mate maps in the beginning of the contig (in my case human mtDNA).

Eg, this will make it crash:

readX 177 MT 16558 37 7S2M2I10M80S = 294 -16176 GACCTGTGATCC...
readY 177 MT 16558 37 7S2M2I10M80S = 238 -16232 GACCTGTGATCC...
readZ 113 MT 16558 37 7S2M2I10M80S = 273 -16197 GACCTGTGATCC...
[END]

where a file ending like this wont crash:

readX 83 MT 16469 60 101M = 16246 -324 TGGGGGTAGCTAAAGTGAAC...
readY 147 MT 16469 60 101M = 16267 -303 TGGGGGTAGCTAAAGTGA...
readZ 147 MT 16469 60 101M = 16193 -377 TGGGGGTAGCTAAAGTGAAC...
[END]

I am running GATK v2.3-9-ge5ebf34, but the same error occurs using GATK v-2.2-3 (my previous version). I can genotype the files using UnifiedGenotyper without any problem as well.

This is the error:
