Gatk-2.3-9 And Input File Format

Hello, I am having sort of a nightmare in trying to format my bam files as required by GATK and have pretty much ran out of ideas. I will therefore appreciate some help.

I have followed the indications suggested to me here ( My bam files are sort-ordered and have read groups added, using Picard-Tools. I also have them indexed with either Picard-Tools, SAMTools or even BAMTools.

One of the problems I am facing is that while it is indicated that GATK only takes indexed bam files, it gives me the following error every time I input a *.bai

<< Invalid command line: The GATK reads argument (-I, --input_file) supports only BAM files with the .bam extension and lists of BAM files with the .list extension, but the file /home/gp53/tophat2-eber-2nd-R1-readgroups-reorder.bai has neither extension. Please ensure that your BAM file or list of BAM files is in the correct format, update the extension, and try again.


I have checked my read groups and headers to make sure they look like the one specified in the GATK website ( Using a non-indexed, yet sort-ordered/readgroup-added bam file, I ran RealignerTargetCreator and I got the following error:

<< ERROR MESSAGE: SAM/BAM file SAMFileReader{/home/gp53/tophat2-eber-2nd-R1-readgroups-reorder.bam} is malformed: Read HWI-ST830:129:D1459ACXX:8:1208:6666:45578 is either missing the read group or its read group is not defined in the BAM header, both of which are required by the GATK


My header looks like this:

I would appreciate your help on this. G.

Thanks so much. I have the RealignerTargetCreator running now in both BWA and TopHat2 alignments.The one thing I changed is to leave the ID=string option as default=1 in AddOrReplaceReadGroups.jar.

That pretty much eliminated the recurring error: Read HWI-ST830:129:D1459ACXX:8:1208:6666:45578 is either missing the read group or its read group is not defined in the BAM header, both of which are required by the GATK
