Hi everyone,

I am relatively new to galaxy and have been trying to set up a workflow for variant calling used paired end Illumina data (MiSeq).  I aligned the reads using BWA-MEM, but have hit a wall using the Mark Duplicate Reads tool.  I’ve repeatedly received the error “Value was put into PairInfoMap more than once”, and I don’t seem to be able to correct the problem.

I did use the –M option (Mark Shorter Split Hits as Secondary).  Here are the steps I took:

1) FASTQ Groomer on both Fastq Files

2) BWA-MEM with groomed FASTQ’s (-M)

3) Addorreplacereadgroups

4) Clean Sam (on .BAM file)

4) Paired read mate fixer

5) MarkDuplicate Reads (Failed)

I ran the analysis on the public galaxy server.  Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi JP, I do not see anything obviously wrong. But I did find a similar post from about 7 months ago. This was someone else, correct?

The MAPQ error has been moved to a warning since that post was written. Perhaps this other fatal error needs to be migrated to be a warning as well. At this point I am opening a ticket for our team to review together. It can be followed here:

Thanks for reporting the problem and hopefully we can resolve it quickly. It is entirely possibly that I missed an input requirement, but we want to rule out a bug/usage issue if there is one. Jen, Galaxy team

Hi Jen, 

You are correct, that was another user.....I came across that post as well.  Thank you very much for starting a ticket, I'm very interested to see the result of your review!
