Im using the mpileup application on galaxy and every base is being called with the ALT <x>. It has 110,000,000 lines as well which seems to be too much. I'm just trying to call SNPs and INDELS. Here is a screenshot. Does anybody know what I am doing wrong?

This prior post at has help for the same issue: See Devon's reply (currently the second answer).

In Galaxy: When using MPilieup, output BCF (instead of VCF) then convert to VCF excluding non-ATGC bases with the tool bcftools view.

Hopefully this helps! Jen, Galaxy team

on bcftools view, there is an option to skip sites where the REF field is not A/C/G/T, but my problem is in the ALT column. What option on bcftools are you referring to?
