I am trying to run variant calling for input BAM file as follows:

I am getting the following error:

##### ERROR
##### ERROR MESSAGE: Badly formed genome loc: Contig 'chrY      150797  151037' does not match any contig in the GATK sequence dictionary derived from the reference; are you sure you are using the correct reference fasta file?
##### ERROR ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I tried to look in the answers here: Snp Calling Error By Gatk Unifiedgenotyper Program but it didn't work. When I change the format of the .intervals file to .bed, it ran but gave an empty vcf file.

java -Xmx5120m  -jar /data/spark/tools/GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T HaplotypeCaller -nct 4 -R /data/spark/ref/ucsc.hg19.fasta -I /data/sarthaksharma/region0-3.bam -o region0.vcf -stand_call_conf 30.0 -stand_emit_conf 30.0 -L /data/sarthaksharma/bed0.bed --no_cmdline_in_header --disable_auto_index_creation_and_locking_when_reading_rods

The log for this command:

The Reference sequence used to generate the BAM is not the same one you are using. Check with

samtools view -H region0-3.bam | less

to know which Reference was used to generate BAM.

Can you tell me what the result is of running without the -L argument? How is your bed file separated?

ADD REPLYlink written 3.1 years ago by WouterDeCoster42k

The bed file is tab separated...I have als added the snippet in the question above. And when I run without the -L argument, it ran and printed the following three entries in the vcf file:

#CHROM  POS     ID      REF     ALT     QUAL    FILTER  INFO    FORMAT  SAMPLE1

So variantcalling works and there is a problem with the interval file... You are sure that it's tab separated and not mixed with spaces or something?

Did you notice in the log 488 reads were filtered out during the traversal out of approximately 507 total reads (96.25%)? So that explains why you only get three variants.

With the -L argument, would those 3 variants be filtered out? Essentially, are those 3 variants included in the bed file intervals?

ADD REPLYlink written 3.1 years ago by WouterDeCoster42k

I have checked it is a tab separated file. Here is how I am making it:

bedtools intersect -a gcat_set_025.bed -b tmp0.bed -header > bed0.bed

Would it do filtering if the intervals file is not in correct format.

ADD REPLYlink modified 3.1 years ago • written 3.1 years ago by sarthak0

Besides the problem with the interval file I would worry more about the bam file, given that only 19 reads are considered good enough by HaplotypeCaller.

Could you run sed 's/ \+ /\t/g' bed0.bed > newbed0.bed and check if that solves your problem?

ADD REPLYlink written 3.1 years ago by WouterDeCoster42k

Thanks...but this too didn't help

ADD REPLYlink written 3.1 years ago by sarthak0

Strange. You ran HaplotypeCaller with -L newbed0.bed right? The error was the same?

Can you show me the output of

grep '>' /data/spark/ref/ucsc.hg19.fasta

and

samtools view -H region0-3.bam | less

(as already suggested by venu)

ADD REPLYlink modified 3.1 years ago • written 3.1 years ago by WouterDeCoster42k

When I am running with the newbed0.bed, I get the same log as I have shown in the question, no error but the vcf file is empty. Here is the snippet of the grep (not complete result, there are lot of lines)

grep '>' /data/spark/ref/ucsc.hg19.fasta

>chrM
>chr1
>chr2
>chr3
>chr4
>chr5
...
>chr21
>chr22
>chrX
>chrY
>chr1_gl000191_random
>chr1_gl000192_random

And for:

samtools view -H region0-3.bam | less

Right, so, connecting the evidence:

  • your contigs in bam file and reference file are okay. No problem there
  • your bed file wasn't properly separated, the sed command took care of that and it's fixed in newbed0.bed. Therefore it ran without error this time.
  • there are no variants in the regions specified by the bed file (since the obtained vcf is empty). Please confirm this by checking whether the 3 variants which were found without -L argument are in the interval(s) specified by the bed file
  • you really need to have a look why so many reads in your bam file fail (mapping quality)

Thank a lot for your help....I will check the bam file
