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.

BaseRecalibrator error in a BAM validated with Picard

ocanelaocanela Member Posts: 5


I have a BAM from RNA Seq experiment. The reads are aligned with tophat and then I filtered secondary reads, fixed mate pairs, marked duplicates with picard and realigned with gatk. However, when I try to use BaseRecalibrator function,

-T BaseRecalibrator -nct 12 -R ./SusGenome10v69/Sus_scrofa.Sscrofa10.2.69.dna.toplevel.fa -I ./7_15.corrected.ordered.sremoved.marked.fixed.realigned.fixed.corrected.ordered.sremoved.marked.fixed.realigned.fixed.bam -knownSites ./SusGenome10v69/Sus_scrofa.vcf -o ./7_15.RecalData.grp

It stops with the error:

ERROR ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The bam file validates properly with the Picard's ValidateSamFile function. I tried with gatk versions, 2.3-9 and 2.4-7 obtaining the same results.

I used the same procedure with other samples without any problem. However, I am unable to recalibrate this sample. I tried to realign the reads with different tophat versions, applied different filters and different procedures, however i am unable to use the BaseRecalibrator function with this sample.

Could you help me?
