#### ☞ Got a problem?

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.

Picard 2.10.4 has MAJOR CHANGES that impact throughput of pipelines. Default compression is now 1 instead of 5, and Picard now handles compressed data with the Intel Deflator/Inflator instead of JDK.
GATK version 4.beta.2 (i.e. the second beta release) is out. See the GATK4 BETA page for download and details.

# Problem with BaseRecalibrator in v2.2-8-gec077cd

Member

Hello dear GATK People,

I'm failing with BaseRecalibrator from the new GATK version - my pipeline worked with the 2.1-11, below is my error message.
Any quick fix or should I stick to the old version?

Hi there, this could be a bug -- could you please check that your BAM file passes validation (with validateSAMFile) and if it does, try to narrow this down as much as possible to a small set of reads + known sites that triggers the error, and then send us the snippets for testing?

Hi Geraldine,

so the input file validates with picard, it also works with the walker from GATK 2.1-11. I can see that the offensive reads are in several places, as after removing the first problematic region it continues through the rest of the chromosome, but fails on the next one.
The alignement is mRNAseq against mm10, done with Tophat. Might it be that introns are the issue here? For the attached file I'm getting
