Hi all,

This might be a basic question and i know it probably doesn't affect anything but I would like to ask:

If you do bcftools normon a file which hasn't returned any indels or variants, is it normal for that file to come back with symbols and chinese characters?

I know that doing bcftools norm on a file like this is probably useless, but i just wanted to ask,

Thanks! Amy

Looks like you may have a compressed file. What does file your_file say?
