Rare variants from annotated vcf file

Hi,

I have annotated my vcf file of 20 samples from Unified genotyper using the following steps.

Unified genotyper->Variantrecalibration->Applyrecalibration->VariantAnnotator

My question is how should I proceed if I have to select rare variants (MAF<1%) for the candidate genes that I have,for each of these 20 samples?

Hi there,

If you're asking how you should design your analysis, I'm afraid this question is beyond our current scope of support. I can only point you to the variant manipulation tools (e.g. SelectVariants) and answer specific questions about how to use them.

I want to use SelectVariants only since I have used all the tools from GATK until Variant Annotator for variants.So in this how should I get MAF (minor allele frequency) to be less than 1%,using -AF parameter?

Also,I need to select variants only for candidate genes that I have.

Ah, sorry to get back to you so late. I believe you should be able to do that simply using -select "AF < 0.01". Let me know if that doesn't work for you.

Hi,

Thanks for your response! I am using this command,and getting some error.

java -Xmx2g -jar /GenomeAnalysisTK-2.7-4-g6f46d11/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T SelectVariants -R human_g1k_v37.fasta --variant annotated.vcf -o annotated.select.vcf -select "AF<0.01"

ERROR stack trace

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid JEXL expression detected for select-0 with message ![0,9]: 'AF < 0.01;' < error
