Hello everyone, I'm a beginner currently studying the Biostar Handbook.

After completing the system installation and bioinformatics environment setup, I attempted to [Run a realistic analysis][1].

However, I encountered the following error after running the make vcf command and am unsure how to resolve it. I hope to receive assistance from the community.

this appears to be a problem that comes from snpEff, all the other steps completed correctly

I'll have to check what is up with snpEff, but sometimes that happens, GenBank formats are notoriously fickle

study the subsequent chapters and see the chapters in the Biostar Workflows for more details

I would also say that the example I gave is just for fun to show what someone new to the field could get done right away after installing the software.

For additional complete data analysis examples, see the makefiles in the Biostar Workflows books.
