Hi all,

I am trying to run a single sample dataset of a paired-end sample obtained for exome sequencing (Read 1 and Read 2) through the seqmule pipeline and it gives this error:

NOTICE: normalzing VCF with Vt...
NOTICE: done normalzing.
NOTICE: keep variants if they are unfiltered in any one of the input files.
NOTICE: extracting variants shared by at least 2 input files.

When I looked at "genotypemergeoption" everywhere (in all the files and directories), they all had UNSORTED provided in the command for "genotypemergeoption", so I do not understand why the error is telling me that "genotypemergeoption" was not supplied.

Any help will be very much appreciated! Thank you!
