VariantFiltration - FORMAT Required
Dear GATK Community,
I am running VariantFiltration on my VCF file that has no FORMAT and SAMPLE column and it gives me the following error:
ERROR MESSAGE: Your input file has a malformed header: The FORMAT field was provided but there is no genotype/sample data
Is there any way to run VariantFiltration by-passing this error or is it really very necessary to have a VCF file with this FOMRAT and SAMPLE information / column?
