Hello everybody,

I am currently working with a one sample VCF file and a lot of my variants have 0/0 in their GT field, which means that they are homozygous for the ref base at that position if I am not mistake. If this is the case, I am wondering why they are even recorded in the VCF file in the first place, since they are not a variant.

If someone could point out what the benefit of including these "variants" in the VCF file is, I would be very grateful.
