Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra
Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.
GATK4 beta2 GenotypeGVCFs produces VCF with no records, just a header
GATK4 beta2 GenotypeGVCFs produces a VCF with no records on my test data. The file does contain a valid VCF header.
The commands that I used for GenomicsDBImport and GenotypeGVCFs are below. Both were run on the GATK4 beta2 jar.
gatk-launch --javaOptions '-Xms500m -Xmx28665m -XX:+UseSerialGC -Djava.io.tmpdir=/data/run/tmpKVSMhn' GenomicsDBImport -V DA_123_01.vcf.gz -V DA_123_02.vcf.gz -V DA_123_03.vcf.gz -V DA_123_04.vcf.gz -V DA_123_05.vcf.gz -V DA_123_06.vcf.gz -V DA_123_07.vcf.gz -V DA_123_08.vcf.gz --genomicsDBWorkspace DEV_1066_Chr_01 --intervals Chr_01 gatk-launch --javaOptions '-Xms500m -Xmx28665m -XX:+UseSerialGC -Djava.io.tmpdir=/data/run/tmpKVSMhn' GenotypeGVCFs -R ./my_species.fa -V gendb://DEV_1066_Chr_01 -G StandardAnnotation -newQual -O DEV_1066_Chr_01.vcf.gz
The output of both tools does not show anything strang. The GenotypeGVCFs tool finishes with these statements:

The gVCF files were produced with GATK4 beta1. Is there a way that this issue can be solved or that I can further debug this issue?
