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.

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.

HaplotypeCaller could not produce HaplotypeScore in raw.vcf file

Hi, I’m trying to use GATK(2.6-4) HaplotypeCaller for variant calling as follows:

 java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T HaplotypeCaller -R hg19/ucsc.hg19.fasta -I 557_family_all_individuals.markdup.realigned.recal.sorted.bam --dbsnp hg19/dbsnp_137.hg19.vcf -o 557_family_all_individuals.raw.vcf -stand_call_conf 30.0 -stand_emit_conf 5.0 -maxAltAlleles --annotation HaplotypeScore --annotation MappingQualityRankSumTest --annotation FisherStrand --annotation ReadPosRankSumTest --annotation QualByDepth -log 557_family_all_individuals.HaplotypeCaller.log

I found there is no HaplotypeScore in output raw.vcf file as follows:

 chrM    10399   .       G       A       525.58  .       AC=6;AF=1.00;AN=6;DP=19;FS=0.000;MLEAC=6;MLEAF=1.00;MQ=60.00;MQ0=0;QD=27.66     GT:AD:GQ:PL     1/1:0,8:24:232,24,0     1/1:0,1:3:30,3,0    1/1:0,10:30:289,30,0
 chrM    10820   .       G       A       1342.91 .       AC=6;AF=1.00;AN=6;DP=47;FS=0.000;MLEAC=6;MLEAF=1.00;MQ=60.00;MQ0=0;QD=28.57     GT:AD:GQ:PL     1/1:0,19:57:551,57,0    1/1:0,7:21:210,21,0 1/1:0,21:63:608,63,0
 chrM    10874   .       C       T       1630.90 .       AC=6;AF=1.00;AN=6;DP=58;FS=0.000;MLEAC=6;MLEAF=1.00;MQ=58.16;MQ0=0;QD=28.12     GT:AD:GQ:PL     1/1:0,20:60:580,60,0    1/1:0,12:36:360,36,01/1:0,25:75:717,75,0

So it could not pass the VariantRecalibrator step and stopped with the error massage "there is no HaplotypeScore in any input variant call set".

Can you tell me what the problem is? And how to fix this?

Thank you, Xiaomin
