Hi everyone,

I'm running PINDEL ( and then i convert the output into .vcf with pindel2vcf ( The problem is that when i head the .vcf file the genotype field "PL" or "Phred-scale" is present but absent when i tail it. So later in my pipeline, i want to use that VCF file generated by pindel2vcf as input into duphold (, but when i start to running it says:

[W::bcf_hdr_check_sanity] PL should be declared as Number=G

In don't know if this is a problem of duphold or pindel, or is just a non reported incompatibility. Any help would be great.

All the paths are correct. I tried with the -G (GATK compatibility) argument of pindel2vcf and without it but i got the same problem.

Thank you,

That is a [common] warning message. Do you know if duphold requires the PL tag?
