HaplotypeCaller --fullHaplotype not outputting full haplotype

I am also having a problem with HaplotypeCaller - when I set the flag to print out full haplotypes, no haplotype files are created. Here is my command:

java -jar /home/chodon/applications/GATK/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T HaplotypeCaller -R /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/Assembly.fasta -I /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/bowtie2_out/A2.sorted.bam --fullHaplotype --ignoreLaneInfo -o /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/GATK_haplo2.out

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks, C

    Hi, Thanks for your quick reply!

    When I added --genotypeFullActiveRegion, full command here:

    java -jar /home/chodon/applications/GATK/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T HaplotypeCaller -R /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/Assembly.fasta -I /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/bowtie2_out/A2.sorted.bam --genotypeFullActiveRegion --fullHaplotype --ignoreLaneInfo -o /home/chodon/comb_eny/abyss/final_contigs/A2/GATK_haplo3.out

    I got an error message: Code exception - here is the stack trace

  • Hi, I am trying the same things, and I have version 2.1. I get an error that says "Unexpected bases in allele bases"

    Hi @sbrubaker, have you tried validating your bam file? That type of error is often associated with invalid bams.
