SVPreprocess error

hykuohykuo TaiwanMember

Hi Bob and all,

I try to use the GenomeSTRiP recently.
I got some error while I am running SVPreprocess.
I modify the installtest/ as my svpreprocess script.

Here are the script content :

export SV_DIR=/home/hykuo/Desktop/svtoolkit


export PATH=${SV_DIR}/bwa:${PATH}


mkdir -p ${runDir}/logs || exit 1
mkdir -p ${runDir}/metadata || exit 1

java -cp ${classpath} ${mx} -jar ${SV_DIR}/lib/SVToolkit.jar

java -cp ${classpath} ${mx} \
org.broadinstitute.gatk.queue.QCommandLine \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVPreprocess.q \
-S ${SV_DIR}/qscript/SVQScript.q \
-gatk ${SV_DIR}/lib/gatk/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \
--disableJobReport \
-cp ${classpath} \
-configFile ${SV_DIR}/conf/genstrip_parameters.txt \
-tempDir ${SV_TMPDIR} \
-R ${SV_METADATA_DIR}/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.fasta \
-genomeMaskFile ${SV_METADATA_DIR}/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.svmask.fasta \
-copyNumberMaskFile ${SV_METADATA_DIR}/Homo_sapiens_assembly19.gcmask.fasta \
-runDirectory ${runDir} \
-md ${runDir}/metadata \
-disableGATKTraversal \
-useMultiStep \
-reduceInsertSizeDistributions false \
-computeGCProfiles true \
-computeReadCounts true \
-jobLogDir ${runDir}/logs \
-I ${inputFile} \
-run \
|| exit 1

The first error is about header.bam file

Here are the content in the SVPreprocess-3.out

[E::hts_open_format] fail to open file '/home/hykuo/Desktop/GenomeSTRiP/SVPreprocess/metadata/headers.bam'
samtools index: failed to open '/home/hykuo/Desktop/GenomeSTRiP/SVPreprocess/metadata/headers.bam": No such file or directory

Should I generate the header.bam file by myself or I get something wrong?

The other error I don't know how it generate

attach file is my full log.
I am not sure why I can't use "sh | tee result" to write the stdout to the file.
Hence I copy the logs to the file, the format is ugly somewhere.
I am not friendly with Post in the forum,too
Sorry for the unfriendly post format

Look forward for your help
Thanks a lot
