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.

VariantEval Stratifications based on FORMAT Fields

LouisBLouisB Broad InstituteMember, Broadie, Dev

I'd like to be able to perform stratifications in a multi sample vcf, by values that are in the format fields. Almost all of the existing stratifications are based on site specific information rather than sample specific ones. One stratification in particular that I would like to perform is by ReadDepth. I would like to be able to differentiate for instance, all samples with ReadDepth greater than 20. This works in single sample vcfs, but it produces strange results in ones with multiple samples, since each VariantContext contains multiple genotypes.

Melting my vcfs and reporting multiple lines for each position seems possible, but ugly. Splitting vcfs so that each sample is in it's own vcf is also possible and ugly. What is the recommended method for dealing with this sort of stratification?
