Hi,

I have noticed that most of my alternate alleles are followed by a "*" allele. In the following example, the GT is 0/6 which seems to correspond to REF/*.

For example:
chr7 54646419 . GCCGGACCCTGTTGGAGGAGGCTGGGTGGTTGCATGGTGCCGTGA GCCCGGACCCTGTTGGAGGAGGCTGGGTGGTTGCATGGTGCCGTGA,GTGTTGGAGGAGGCTGGGTGGTTGCATGGTGCCGTGA,GGGCTGGGTGG
TTGCATGGTGCCGTGA,GCGGACCCTGTTGGAGGAGGCTGGGTGGTTGCATGGTGCCGTGA,GACCGGACCCTGTTGGAGGAGGCTGGGTGGTTGCATGGTGCCGTGA,* 182245.29 GT:AD:DP:GQ:PL 0/6:840,0,0,0,0,0,73:917:99:170,2590,35627,2590,35627,35627,2590,35627,35627,35627,2590,35627,35627,35627,35627,2590,35627,35627,35627,35627,35627,0,33783,33783,33783,33783,33783,34747

How do I interpret these * alleles?

Thank you.
