Unable to Run Lumpy

When trying to run Lumpy, it is not recognizing that I have the correct input in my directory despite having run Lumpy pre-processing with three outputs (split-read alignments, discordant read pairs, and collated and groomed data). Is there a certain way to correct this or advice for running Lumpy?

Dear @shelbigill,
Have you ran Lumpy on a local Galaxy instance or have you used a pblic instance such as usegalaxy.org?

I tested the tool quickly on usegalaxy.eu with some test data and it worked. So if your input is not recognized and you are operating on a public instance, then make sure that your input data for Lumpy pre-processing has not a weird name. You can also check again if all result files are in bam or in a qname_sorted.bam format.

I hope I could help and best wishes,
Florian

Hi Florian,

I was able to input the three required input files after some adjustment, but I’m now presented with an error where it is unable to retrieve the index files for the BAM files input. I know that I have the index files present. How would you recommend handling this?

Thanks,
Shelbi

Dear @shelbigill,
Can you check if one of the three input files is empty (i.e., it contains maybe all header lines but the bam file does not contain any reads)?

Cheers,
Florian

Hi Florian,

The three input files all appear to have their data. Nothing is empty. They are being run in collection data sets.

Thanks,

Hi @shelbigill,
the error may be due to the BAM files not having read groups. You can confirm that by visualizing the header of the BAM file. If it doesn’t contain read groups, you can add them it by using AddOrReplaceReadGroups.

Hi @gallardoalba,

I reran the three collections to ensure they had the read groups via AddOrReplaceReadGroups. When inputting into Lumpy, I am still presented with the error that it could not retrieve the bam index file. I have tried running this multiple times with a focus on ensuring the read groups were present before replying.
