Hiii Can anyone please help me to find a solution for this...I got the following error while running gatk for variant filtering.

Seems to be an acceptable option in the docs

java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar \

-T VariantFiltration \

-R reference.fasta \

-o output.vcf \

--variant input.vcf \

--filterExpression "AB < 0.2 || MQ0 > 50" \

--filterName "SomeFilterName"

Hello <uname>,

Please use the formatting bar (especially the code option) to present your post better. I've done it for you this time.
code_formatting

In your case the number of allowed chars is exceeded if you trying to do this. For long code or messages it would be better to create a gist on github and just copy and paste the link to it here.

Thank you!

Thanks for your kind response..

ADD REPLYlink written 16 months ago by ashaneev0720

Please could you format your post (command lines) ? It's quite unreadable for now

ADD REPLYlink written 16 months ago by Bastien Hervé4.5k

Hii Thanks for the reply. I've pasted the command below.

./gatk VariantFiltration \ -R /home/Documents/Tools_NGS/VariantCall/genome_assembly.fa \  -V /media/TOSHIBAEXT/Variant_Calling/Untitled Folder/snps_300bp.vcf.gz  \ -O snp_output.vcf.gz \  --filter-expression "AB < 0.2 || MQ0 > 50" \--filter-name "my_filters"

You need an -O argument. Also, ditch all of the \ line escapes, since they're confusing your shell and making it think you specified ' -R' rather than '-R'.

Thanks for your suggestion. I've tried with as you mensioned.But it shows the same error message.Here i've pasted my command.

 ./gatk VariantFiltration  -R /home/Documents/Tools_NGS/VariantCall/genome_assembly.fa   -V /media/TOSHIBAEXT/Variant_Calling/Untitled Folder/snps_300bp.vcf.gz  -O snp_output.vcf.gz  --filter-expression "AB < 0.2 || MQ0 > 50" --filter-name "my_filters"

If you're still getting the complaints about -R then try removing that option and see what happens. That could well be a GATK bug.
