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.
SNV gets dbSNP annotation in one sample, doesn't get annotated in another one
I recently run HaplotypeCaller for GATK3.7 on a series of samples (several GATK runs performed at the same time), using the latest release of dbSNP(150). This was the command line I used for both cases (I omissed the full paths for privacy concerns):
\ -Xmx4g -jar /data01/Softwares/GATK/3.7/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
-T HaplotypeCaller \
-R /path/to/hg19 \
-I input_bam \
-o output.vcf \
and here's the same variant reported in two different files of the same data (exomes) performed using the same kit, on the same NextSeq run
chr11 125479363 rs2241502 G A 208.01 . AC=2;AF=1.00;AN=2;DB;DP=9;ExcessHet=3.0103;FS=0.000;MLEAC=2;MLEAF=1.00;MQ=60.00;QD=23.11;SOR=0.892 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/1:0,9:9:27:222,27,0

I've seen this error running sistematically for several other positions in the same run, and I fear that the error might be always been there and I didn't notice before. I'm wondering if you know why this occurs, if it's a bug and it is known and if I should reannotate with VariantAnnotator every vcf I got in order to fix the issue (if VariantAnnotator is immune from this bug)
Thanks a lot for your help and time, I'm here for every clarification
