The ID column represents the ID of dbsnp database, i.e if the variant is reported in dbsnp then its ID will be given there, and u can reduce the read depth by setting the option -D 10 in vcfutils command.
vcfutil command converts the binary file bcf to a more readable format of variants and also we can use various filters to get more novel variants
