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.

Homozygous VS Heterozygous


I have two SNP calls as shown below:

chr1 86208198 . G C 903.25 PASS AC=2;AF=1.00;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=0.117;DP=33;Dels=0.00;FS=6.463;HRun=0;HaplotypeScore=8.5544;MQ=43.69;MQ0=0;MQRankSum=-0.506;QD=27.37;ReadPosRankSum=0.272;SB=-414.82 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 1/1:2,30:33:18.60:936,19,0

chr16 14895239 . C T 671.60 . AC=1;AF=0.50;AN=2;BaseQRankSum=-0.582;DP=33;Dels=0.00;FS=0.000;HRun=0;HaplotypeScore=1.5317;MQ=53.44;MQ0=0;MQRankSum=0.970;QD=20.35;ReadPosRankSum=-0.711;SB=-292.79 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/1:3,30:33:6.39:701,0,6

The first SNP is categorized as 1/1 and the second SNP as 0/1. For both the SNP's the variant allele ratio are 30/32=0.9375 and 30/33=0.909 which are approximately equal and above 0.9. On what criteria one SNP is determined as 0/1 and the other as 1/1?

As per my knowledge both the SNPs should be 1/1. Could anyone comment the reason for this discrepancy?
