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.
CombineVariants fail when combining vcf from genotypeGVCFs genotyped using -allSites flag
When I attempt to run the tools CombineVariant with two vcf files generated from GenotypeGVCFs using the flag -allSites I get an error saying that I should not use combineVariants in a gvcf file. But my files are not gvcf.
ERROR MESSAGE: CombineVariants should not be used to merge gVCFs produced by the HaplotypeCaller; use CombineGVCFs instead
java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar
gatk version v3.7-0
If I run it in the vcfs from GenotypeGVCFs not using the flag -allSites, I don't get this error and it runs fine.
