Overview

GenomOncology Variant Call File (VCF) generator built on top of the VCF parser within the pysam project. The generator yields two record types as indicated by the __type__ dictionary attribute:

  • Header (1 per VCF file)
  • Call (1 per unique sample alt)

The header includes the following information:

  • __child__: the type of the records that will follow the header.
  • config: any configuration fields provided to the generator.
  • file_path: the file location of the VCF.
  • formats: the meta data of the FORMAT fields in the header.
  • info: the meta data of the INFO fields in the header.
  • types: the field type of all of the fields found in the INFO or FORMAT.

A call is the representation of a single ALT allele for a given sample. The calls are generated for each VCF record by iterating each of the samples and yielding a call for each unique ALT index specified by the GT (genotype) field.

A call includes the following fields:

  • alt: alternate allele
  • chr: chromosome
  • filters: filters provided, including None for '.'
  • info: info value fields
  • is_het: boolean that is true when allele is heterozygous (e.g. 0/1)
  • is_phased: boolean that indicates whether phased (|) or unphased (/)
  • quality: quality value
  • ref: reference allele
  • rs_id: ID field
  • sample_name: name of the sample column
  • start: start position

This package also has a class called BedFilter which can be passed into the iterator functions that filters records by chromosome and start position and only yields calls that fall within the range specified by the BED file.

Quick Example

The following example is what the parsing of the example provided at the top of the VCF Specification document here:

Here is the VCF:

Here is some example python code:

from govcf import iterate_vcf_calls, BEDFilter
from pprint import pprint

bed_filter = BEDFilter("panel.bed")

for record in iterate_vcf_calls("tests/vcfs/spec.vcf", bed_filter=bed_filter):
    pprint(record)

Yields the following results:
