Error in GenomeStrip when using a bam file with added RG groups using AddOrReplaceReadGroups.jar

I have a question regarding the PicardTools AddOrReplaceReadGroups tool. I am using a single-sample WGS dataset and it arrived without any RG information, which I have now added with this command:

$HOME/bin/java -Xmx20g -jar /home/exome/bin/AddOrReplaceReadGroups.jar  \
I=DVH_GEONOME0002_novoalign.bam  \
O=DVH_GEONOME0002_novoalign_RG.bam  \
SORT_ORDER=coordinate \
RGID=HiSeq1 \
RGPL=illumina \

This seems to have worked, but when I use the output file for GenomeStrip (PreProcess), I get an error:

ERROR MESSAGE: Error parsing SAM header. Problem parsing @RG key:value pair. Line:
ERROR @RG ID:HiSeq1 PL:illumina PU: LB:WGS SM:DVH_genome0002; File /data_n2/vmistry/illumina_genome_SS6004426_HUSS1728_VM/DVH_genome0002_novoalign_RG.bam; Line number 86

I can't see any issues with line 86:

HS2000-1010_95:5:2202:3599:13204 99 chr1 10004 0 100M = 10023 118 CCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCTAACCCT <<<>>>===>??===>>>===>>?===>??===???===>??===???===???===??>===???===>?>===>??==<><>===???='9><899;= MD:Z:100 PG:Z:novoalign RG:Z:HiSeq1 AM:i:70 NM:i:0 SM:i:70 PQ:i:92 UQ:i:1 AS:i:

And the header of the RG_bam file looks like this:

Any idea what the issue could be?

Many thanks

    I suspect the error message is referring to line 86 in the header, the @RG line.
    And I further suspect the problem is the missing PU: field (i.e. $1 in your original script probably had no value).

    Ah OK, thanks
    I will try again

    I sorted the read groups in the .bam file, but have another issue when running PreProcess

    Here is my command:
    java -Xmx2g -cp /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/gatk/Queue.jar:/data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/SVToolkit.jar:/data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar org.broadinstitute.sting.queue.QCommandLine -S /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/qscript/SVPreprocess.q -S /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/qscript/SVQScript.q -gatk /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -cp /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/SVToolkit.jar:/data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -configFile /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/conf/genstrip_parameters.txt -tempDir /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/tmpdir -md /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/metadata -R /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.fasta -genomeMaskFile /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.mask.101.fasta -copyNumberMaskFile /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/cn2_mask_g1k_v37.fasta -ploidyMapFile /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/humgen_g1k_v37_ploidy.map -genderMapFile /data_n2/vmistry/Software/svtoolkit/Gender.map -reduceInsertSizeDistributions -computeGCProfiles -bamFilesAreDisjoint -I DVH_genome0002_novoalign_RG_v02.bam -run

    And I get an error when the ref profile is computing:

    DBG: Wed Jul 24 15:10:40 BST 2013 computing reference profile for the interval NC_007605:1-171823

    Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Invalid sequence position: NC_007605:201

    As far as I can see, there is no NC_007605:201 in the header of my bam file, it's the same as above

    Any idea where this is coming from?


  • bhandsakerbhandsaker Member, Broadie ✭✭✭✭

    Can you include a complete stack trace?
    The essence of the problem is that you are mixing incompatible reference sequences and masks (Homo_sapiens_assembly19 and g1k_v37) that have slight differences.
    The first thing you need to do is to find out (and be 100% sure) which exact fasta file was used to align your bams.
    Everything else needs to match that fasta file exactly.

    NC_007605 is the Epstein-Barr virus genome - the virus is in all lymphoblastoid cell lines (as the transforming agent).
