1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

#### ☞ Formatting tip!

Wrap blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks (  ) each to make a code block as demonstrated here.

# Triggering genotype calls at HapMap sites

Member
edited September 2012

Hi,

I would like to trigger calls at HapMap sites even if they are HOM_REF in my sample. I used to accomplish this in an older GATK version with the following parameter passed to the UnifiedGenotyper: -B:trigger,VCF hapmap.vcf
Right now I am using version 1.6 of the GATK.
How could I accomplish exactly the same with this new version?

What I am trying to do (when doing VariantEval on the detected SNPs) is to obtain GenotypeConcordance for all:
HETs, HOM_REFs, and HOM_VAR.
Currently I only get the concordance values for HETs and HOM_VAR on the VariantEval output.
Asked in a different way, how could I get the 'n_true_HOM_REF_called_*' fields populated in the VariantEval?

Hi Gene, please have a look at the documentation for the UnifiedGenotyper, specifically the --output_mode` argument.

Hi Geraldine,

• If I set --output_mode to EMIT_ALL_SITES I get the calls at HapMap HOM_REF sites but also every single base in the intervals indicated by -L file.bed gets called. This is undesirable.
The previous -B:trigger,VCF hapmap.vcf argument would trigger aditional calls ONLY at those site that were HOM_REF in the HapMap reference. Is there a way to obtain this same effect with a different combination of parameters (without having to call SNPs at every single base)?

Thx,
Gene
