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.

#### ☞ 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.

# ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -1, -2, -4, -5, -15 during BaseRecalibrator

Hi there,
I have a set of data I'm trying to process through GATK for SNP and Indel calling. When these files get to the BaseRecalibrator I get an error as follows.

##### ERROR stack trace

java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: -1
at org.broadinstitute.sting.gatk.traversals.TraverseReadsNano$TraverseReadsMap.apply(TraverseReadsNano.java:203) at org.broadinstitute.sting.gatk.traversals.TraverseReadsNano$TraverseReadsMap.apply(TraverseReadsNano.java:191)

##### ERROR ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Each file has a different error number with -1, -2, -4, -5, or -15. The only other thing different in the outputs is line 4, at org.broadinstitute.sting.utils.baq.BAQ.hmm_glocal(BAQ.java:246) , in which the 246 is occasionally 225.

The same scripts I am using for these runs have successfully completed about 40+ other runs to date, so I'm at a bit of a loss here. I am running Java version 1.7.0_13 on Ubuntu 12.04. Any help resolving this would be appreciated.
