Heads up:
We’re moving the GATK website, docs and forum to a new platform. Read the full story and breakdown of key changes on this blog.
Notice:
If you happen to see a question you know the answer to, please do chime in and help your fellow community members. We encourage our fourm members to be more involved, jump in and help out your fellow researchers with their questions. GATK forum is a community forum and helping each other with using GATK tools and research is the cornerstone of our success as a genomics research community.We appreciate your help!

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.
Attention:
We will be out of the office for a Broad Institute event from Dec 10th to Dec 11th 2019. We will be back to monitor the GATK forum on Dec 12th 2019. In the meantime we encourage you to help out other community members with their queries.
Thank you for your patience!

VQSR with custom annotations?

smgogartensmgogarten University of WashingtonMember

Is it possible to run VQSR with custom annotations? I added some additional columns (not produced by GATK) to the INFO field of my VCF file, and included them with the "-an" flag to VariantRecalibrator. The VariantRecalibratorEngine reports convergence, but then I get this:

INFO  12:55:25,499 VariantDataManager - Training with worst 0 scoring variants --> variants with LOD <= -5.0000.
##### ERROR stack trace
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No data found.

If I run VariantRecalibrator without the custom annotations but everything else the same, it works. I'm using GATK v3.4-46-gbc02625.
