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.
We will be out of the office on October 14, 2019, due to the U.S. holiday. We will return to monitoring the forum on October 15.
CombineVariants Key . found in VariantContext field INFO but this key isn't defined in the VCFHeader
I have encountered the following error when trying to merge two VCFs from different callers:
Key . found in VariantContext field INFO at chrM:711 but this key isn't defined in the VCFHeader. We require all VCFs to have complete VCF headers by default.
From looking at the VCF inputs, I can see that one of my VCFs has
. as its INFO field (it's an output from Mutect 1). However, according to the VCF spec, this is a valid placeholder value.
I have attached the output log from this command, as well as the two VCFs.
Is this the correct behaviour? How can this error be avoided?
