Got a problem?

1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
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.

Did we ask for a bug report?

Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

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.

Your experience with VQSLOD filtering

Dear all,
I have a set of 48 exomes which were analysed according to the best practices (using GATK-2.2-3 and HaplotypeCaller). According to the VQRS I have this first level of "uncertainty":

##FILTER=<ID=VQSRTrancheBOTH90.00to99.00,Description="Truth sensitivity tranche level for BOTH model at VQS Lod: -1.3455 <= x < 2.62">

that sets filter=PASS for variants with VQSLOD >= 2.62.
I also have an external validation of some SNPs, 3 out of 20 have a VQSLOD lower than 2.62 (1.24, .1.37 and 1.69). Now the question: should I trust the validation and set the filter to, say, VQSLOD >= 1.2 or keep the GATK filter? What is your experience about this?
