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.

GATK reports wrong allele

I downloaded the following BAM file: ftp://ftp.sra.ebi.ac.uk/vol1/ERA596/ERA596386/bam/Burkhardtshohle.bam

I sorted and indexed the file with samtools.

Then I created a VCF with the following command:

java -Xmx4g -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -l INFO -R resources/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.fasta -T UnifiedGenotyper -I Burkhardtshohle_sorted.bam -L Y -rf BadCigar -o Burkhardtshohle.vcf --output_mode EMIT_ALL_SITES -nct 4

At position Y:7190277 it reports reference allele A and no alt allele. However, the BAM file has G at this position. I also ran this with HaplotypeCaller and similar options but it still gave me A instead of G.

Am I doing something wrong, or...?
