I am taking the course on coursera. For the final project we have to Identify DNA polymorphic sites.

I have completed most of the steps but when I try to filter my vcf file to find ins and del it returns 0 lines. When I do it separately no problem.

I tried every possible solutions, read forums, documentations and so on.

What I did I add filters with button and did not work, and I tried with combining two filtering criteria in a same line with & operator also did not work.

Any suggestions about this point?

Please use the most current tool version if not already: VCFfilter (Galaxy Version 1.0.0_rc1+galaxy1)

The prior tool version included in the Coursera tutorials was removed from Galaxy Main server for technical reasons.

Current open issues with this tool (usage/tool form help related):

I'll do some testing to determine if using multiple filters with the updated tool is either 1) a usage issue (and post back help) or 2) a new tool bug (a new issue ticket will be part of this).

Thanks for reporting the problem, more feedback on Monday. Jen, Galaxy team

Thank you Jen, could you please try it with add filters TYPE = ins then add 2nd filter TYPE = del . This way did not work for me. So I did it separately to move on.

Looking forward to your feedback.
