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.

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.

    I am attempting to use PhaseByTransmission :)

    I'd like to discuss the use of multiallelic variants with the authors, so I'm just looking for their contact information.

    Correction -- PBT was actually written by Laurent Francioli. I have notified him of your interest and invited him to respond in this thread.

    Hi Erik,

    I indeed wrote PBT and currently it doesn't support multi-allelic sites. I am however planning to address this in the next few months.. If you have ideas or want to help with it, I'd of course be happy to hear your suggestions!

    Hi Laurent,

    Do you have a written description of the algorithm available? This might help me see how I could help.
