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.
We will be out of the office on November 11th and 13th 2019, due to the U.S. holiday(Veteran's day) and due to a team event(Nov 13th). We will return to monitoring the GATK forum on November 12th and 14th respectively. Thank you for your patience.

No records when merging vcfs from HaplotypeCaller and mpileup

I am using gatk MergeVcfs or bcftools isec to compare the vcfs from different pipelines (GATK4 HaplotypeCaller, SAMtools mpileup and DeepVariant).

However, when I tried to merge the gvcf from HaplotypeCaller with vcfs from other variant callers using bcftools isec, there is no records in the merged vcf file (or return " The contig entries in input file my.g.vcf are not compatible with the others." when using gatk MergeVcfs). I was wondering whether this is because there is in the ALT column. Can anyone tell me how can I further process the gvcfs from HaplotypeCaller to make it comparable with other vcfs?

Thanks for any suggestions!
