Hi I´ve a strange problem with the GATK. Everytime I try to run it my Console shows the following error Message.

    Hi Oliver,

    The error message says it all: your command is missing an argument. Please read the documentation (such as this one and this one to start with) for solutions.

    In future please try to read the documentation first before posting a User Error in the forum.
