Question: lgen to ped using plink

Hi All,

How can I create a lgen file which has only one individual genotyped for 300,000 SNPs. I mean in the context of sample ids, what shall I use? I created the lgen, fam files below. Then I used plink 1.9 to generate ped file (log file shown belos). The problem is that genotypes in ped file mismatch genotype in lgen file.

lgen_file:

200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 rs1000002 A G
200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 rs1000003 A G
200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 rs10000030 A G
200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 rs10000037 G G

fam_file:

200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 0 0 0 0

map_file:

3 rs1000002 0 183635768
3 rs1000003 0 98342907
4 rs10000030 0 103374154
4 rs10000037 0 38924330

ped_file:

200638550003_R01C01 200638550003_R01C01 0 0 0 -9 A A G A G A G A G G G A G A A A A A G G

log_file:

Wrote a response earlier, but it seems to have disappeared.

The main issue is that your .map file is unsorted; plink will sort it by position before generating the new .ped + .map fileset, and I'm guessing that's why there appears to be a discrepancy.

Also, it doesn't look like you posted the entire .lgen or .map input files, since they have only 4 variants but the .log file states that 10 were loaded.

Hi Chang, Thanks again for the reply. You are right, this discrepancy is due to the unsorted map file. After comparing ped file with a sorted map file, everything seems to be fine now.
