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.

GATK version 4.beta.3 (i.e. the third beta release) is out. See the GATK4 beta page for download and details.

# HaplotypeCaller rs annotation

Member

Hi there,
I'm running now the new GATK 2.2-2 version and I noticed an issue with HaplotypeCaller I had in the previous version I was using.
Despite adding the dbSNP ROD to the walker, the emitted VCF doesn't contain rs names in the name field.
On the contrary, UnifiedGenotyper annotates the variants with the appropriate names.

In my .scala code I wrote:

 class HaplotypeCallerArguments (t: Target) extends HaplotypeCaller with UNIVERSAL_GATK_ARGS {
this.reference_sequence = qscript.referenceFile
this.intervals = if (qscript.intervals == null) Nil else List(qscript.intervals)
// Set the memory limit to 6 gigabytes on each command.
this.memoryLimit = 6
this.input_file :+= qscript.bamFile
this.D = qscript.dbSNP_b37
}


and that is correctly reflected when queue launches the job as

 INFO  16:07:30,655 FunctionEdge - Starting:  'java'  '-Xmx6144m'  '-XX:+UseParallelOldGC'  '-XX:ParallelGCThreads=4'  '-XX:GCTimeLimit=50'  '-XX:GCHeapFreeLimit=10'  '-Djava.io.tmpdir=/SAN/biomed/analysis/tmp'  '-cp' '/share/apps/genomics/Queue-2.2-2-gf44cc4e/Queue.jar'
'org.broadinstitute.sting.gatk.CommandLineGATK'  '-T' 'HaplotypeCaller'  '-I' '/SAN/biomed/analysis/recal.list'  '-L' '/SAN/biomed/analysis/.queue/scatterGather/HaplotypeCaller-sg/temp_016_of_300/scatter.intervals'  '-R' '/share/apps/genomics/reference/human_g1k_v37.fasta'
'-l' 'INFO'  '-o' '/SAN/biomed/analysis/.queue/scatterGather/HaplotypeCaller-sg/temp_016_of_300/comparisonHC.raw.vcf' '-D' '/share/apps/genomics/reference/gatkresources_hg19_1.5/ftp.broadinstitute.org/bundle/1.5/b37/dbsnp_135.b37.vcf'


However, my VCF still looks like

grep -v \# HC.raw.vcf | cut -f 1,2,3,4,5 | more
1   762273  .   G   A
1   865738  .   A   G
1   866319  .   G   A
1   866511  .   C   CCCCT
1   871042  .   C   CA
1   874734  .   C   T
`

Am I doing something wrong?
It would be quite time consuming to launch VariantAnnotation if not necessary, as I understand now the covariates used by VQSR are already emitted by the caller.

thanks,
Francesco

Unfortunately the HaplotypeCaller can't annotate the rsIDs yet. We'll work on getting this added for the next release. Thanks for letting us know that you need this functionality.

I was wondering if this has been updated? I've been calling HaplotypeCaller with the --dbsnp command, but none of the SNPs in my output have IDs, even though they overlap and have the same genotypes as ones in my dbsnp file. I'm using GATK 2.5.2

Not yet, it is a known limitation of the tool that we have listed as a todo but we haven't gotten to it yet.
