I've been looking in the hg38 mapped version of chromosome 12 from 1000 genomes (phase 3) data. Curiously, at certain parts (longer than several hundred kb) of this lift-over version, there are not any SNPs. The region I'm interested in is chromosome 12: 7,500,000-8,000,000. When I run the following command, I simply don't get any SNPs, but the header:
tabix -h ALL.chr12_GRCh38.genotypes.20170504.vcf.gz 12:7500000-8000000
Whereas, when I use the same command for most other parts of the vcf, I can get the SNP list normally.
So, I was wondering if it's somehow a known issue or am I doing something wrong as usual.
Any help is much appreciated.
