Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra
Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.
I am using GATK v2.4.9 and i am trying to liftover from one build to another. Below are the arguments for LiftoverVariants:
Arguments for LiftoverVariants:
-V,--variant Input VCF file
-o,--out File to which variants should be written
-chain,--chain Chain file
-dict,--newSequenceDictionary Sequence .dict file for the new build
-recordOriginalLocation,--recordOriginalLocation Should we record what the original location was in the INFO field?
Here is the command i have used,
java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T LiftoverVariants -chain canFam2ToCanFam3.over.chain -dict canFam3_dog_genome.dict -V
canFam2_snp131.vcf -o canFam3_snp131.vcf
It showed an error message:
ERROR MESSAGE: Walker requires a reference but none was provided.
The argument reference was not present in the documentation and the tool needs a reference argument. If it is required, what should be the reference file, new build or old build?
