Metadata for ComputeGCProfiles in GenomeSTRiP

Hi there,

I'm trying to run ComputeGCProfiles from the GenomeSTRiP suite, but am running into a problem that seems to be related to the metadata. I am using the mouse mm10 genome and have built metadata files as described on the GenomeSTRiP website (http://software.broadinstitute.org/software/genomestrip/node_ReferenceMetadata.html). Nonetheless, by running the following from the command line :

java -cp /data/brickkm/genomeSTRIP/lib/SVToolkit.jar:/usr/local/apps/GATK/3.6/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -Xmx4g org.broadinstitute.sv.apps.ComputeGCProfiles -R /data/brickkm/genomeSTRIP/accessory_files/mm10/mm10.fasta -O tst.zip --metaDataLocation /data/brickkm/genomeSTRIP/accessory_files/mm10 -l DEBUG

I get the error below .... Any suggestions ??
