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.

wrong QD value in a vcf file

Hello,
Here is part of a vcf generated by GATK Unified Genotyper :

chr4 106196323 . TCAGA T 32729.73 LowQD AC=1;AF=0.500;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=21.836;DP=6712;FS=8.862;MLEAC=1;MLEAF=0.500;MQ=56.96;MQ0=0;MQRankSum=9.297;QD=1.22;RPA=2,1;RU=CAGA;ReadPosRankSum=7.319;STR GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/1:4452,1723:6710:99:32767,0,32767

chr4 106196951 rs2454206 A G 5061.77 PASS ABHet=0.497;AC=1;AF=0.500;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=0.366;DB;DP=358;Dels=0.00;FS=7.738;HaplotypeScore=45.9328;MLEAC=1;MLEAF=0.500;MQ=57.45;MQ0=0;MQRankSum=0.483;QD=14.14;ReadPosRankSum=0.820 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/1:178,180:358:99:5090,0,5314

The first variant is filtred by the "LowQD filter" ( QD = 1.22 < 1.5) whereas it seems to be good.
Indeed : QD=QUAL/DP = 32729.73/6710 = 4.87.

When I calculate other QD for other variant in the same file, the result is good.

So, why GATK indicates a wrong QD value ?
(I did the Unified Genotyper twice, and the results are the same).

Thank you for your answer.
