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.
Badly formed genome location
I am trying to get depth of coverage using DepthOfCoverage tools of gatk for determining CNV. But I am consistently getting an error of badly formed genome location. Here is the command I am using for calculations:
java -Xmx3072m -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T DepthOfCoverage -nt 10 -I /home/MM_Data/cnv_data/group1.READS.bam.list -L /home/MM_Data/cnv_data/nexterarapidcapture_expandedexome_targetedregions.interval_list -R /home/refs/ucsc.hg19.fasta -dt BY_SAMPLE -dcov 5000 -l INFO --omitDepthOutputAtEachBase --omitLocusTable --minBaseQuality 10 --minMappingQuality 20 --start 1 --stop 5000 --nBins 200 --includeRefNSites --countType COUNT_FRAGMENTS -o /home/MM_Data/cnv_data/group1.DATA
And the error statement is givine below:
##### ERROR MESSAGE: Badly formed genome location: Contig 'chr1 14362 14829' does not match any contig in the GATK sequence dictionary derived from the reference; are you sure you are using the correct reference fasta file?
I am using the same reference ucsc hg19 fasta file which I used in whole pipeline for NGS processing and variant evaluation. I have downloaded the exome interval list from here as I was told to use exome interval for NXTR Rapid Cap Expand EXM kit Cat no. FC-140-1005. Gatk countLoci is working well with my bam files and gives number of loci. I don't know what I missed. Any suggestions........
