funcotator error

Hi, FireCloud team

Sorry for the duplicated question. I just want to update the format.

I ran into a problem recently coming from Funcotator. I initially run Mutect2 coupled with Funcotator on FireCloud, GATK version, but it throw out some error. And I also tried run Funcotator locally and it produces the almost identical error, see below

[June 6, 2018 1:47:32 PM EDT] done. Elapsed time: 12.63 minutes.
java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -61
    at java.lang.String.substring(

I know Funcotator is still in beta version, but want to ask you help me debug this problem and I am also wondering is there any more stable Funcotator.

    Thank you for updating your format-- It certainly helps to see error messages in code brackets.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to help you with your error, but I think one of my colleagues @Sheila or @shlee may be able to. I'm moving your question to the GATK forum where they will be able to assist with Funcotator.

    Hi @zwzhang,

    The developer says that updating to GATK4.0.5.0 should solve the issue. Also, please be sure to use the latest data sources.
