I am performing a study with data from 80 cancer patients, half of which showed one symptom and the other half did not. This is my first time trying exome-seq to find variants.

I followed this exome sequencing data tutorial and created a annotated, combined VCF file from all my samples. However, the gemini load tool is not working. It gives me the following error:

Fatal error: Exit code 1 ()
/cvmfs/ RuntimeWarning: numpy.dtype size changed, may indicate binary incompatibility. Expected 96, got 88

Please ensure the GEMINI data is installed using the script
WARNING:galaxy.datatypes.binary:<galaxy.datatypes.binary.GeminiSQLite object="" at="" 0x2b3ceb2936d0="">, set_meta Exception: no such table: version

Does anyone know why it might not have worked? It is because I didn't upload a PED file? I was under the impression that it is optional. As these patients are not family-related I thought it would not be useful to use a PED file. If the error is not occurring because of the PED file, I'm not sure what the problem might be!

Thank you so much in advance!

Yes, the tool is problematic at We just updated it and the dependent annotation database indexes have not been added yet. We'll be updating this. Ticket:

This tutorial is noted as working only at the EU public Galaxy server on the GTN website under the gear icon for "Galaxy instances": I tested the tool there today and it works fine - just be certain to use the most current version of the tool and the annotation or you will run into more problems. Any other combinations will fail.

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
