I am using GATK VariantsTOVCF to convert .txt format to .vcf format and met the error. The commands I used are as follows,

$ java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -R genome.fa -T VariantsToVCF --variant:mm10 snp137.txt -o snp137.vcf

Here is the ERROR information, not quite understand what is it exact mean since I am new to use this software

ERROR ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It clearly says not to post it on GATK forum but you still pasted it which is not cool. As it says there is sth wrong with your input command. Can you paste the usage for VariantsToVCF feature of GATK.

Thank you for your reminding, ashutoshmits. there is no details for the usage of VariantsToVCF in GATK pakage but from the Broad institute website as http://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/gatkdocs/org_broadinstitute_sting_gatk_walkers_variantutils_VariantsToVCF.html

You need to sepcify the input file format to GATK that you wish to convert to VCF. Also the file needs to be coordinate sorted.

java GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantsToVCF -V:OLDDBSNP snp137.txt.sorted -R UCSC_Mouse_MM10.fasta -o snp137.vcf

Thank you Vivek, I have made some modifications as follows.

$ java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantsToVCF -V:OLDDBSNP snp137.txt -R genome.fa -o snp137.vcf

Ashutoshmits and Vivek, thank you for your suggestion. I used the following commands. It works this time, however, the snp137.vcf file has the size as 0 when I checked it from Linux. It seems like I missed something there when I run VariantsToVCF. the 2 other other files have been generated as snp137.txt.idx and snp137.txt.idx.

$ java -jar GenomeAnalysisTK.jar -T VariantsToVCF -V:OLDDBSNP snp137.txt -R genome.fa -o snp137.vcf

I have the same problem. When I run the Variants to VCF converter command, it gives me back 3 files: snp138.txt.idx, snp138.vcf and snp138.vcf.idx. The problem is that the .vcf file has a size of 0. I used the same commands as Tonyzeng.

This is what I get back:
