I am trying to use mpileup> bcf tools view to call variants on a cloudman instance.
If I set mpileup up to output a .vcf there is no problem but if I select all the same settings but select .bcf format the job runs and goes green but there is a yellow flag stating 'An error occurred setting the metadata for this dataset
Set it manually or retry auto-detection' .
I have tried auto detect and the same error flag remains.The database build is correct and so is the datatype (bcf). If I change the data type to another arbitrary type the yellow flag disappears but returns if 'bcc' is re-specfied.
bcf tools will not recognise the dataset as valid input with this flag present.
Do you have ideas what is going wrong? Thanks Guy
