When doing Admixture and outputting cv error rate for a range of k values, one of the k values keeps on outputting "nan" as the error rate. It works for the other k values, but not for this one. Has this happened to anyone else?
I had this issue today and was able to resolve it by changing the random seed Admixture uses by adding -s time (which sets the random seed based on the current time) to my command so it looks something like this:
admixture --cv -s time inputFile.ped 6
I'm not sure why this works, but so far it has fixed the issue for me. I previously had tried restarting the K=6 run several times and the seed was always the same, so it always gave me the nan Loglikelihood and delta values. I figured trying a different starting point might fix things.
Edit: While continuing to run Admixture with other data, the issue still sometimes persists with this solution in place. However, stopping the run and restarting to get a new seed seems to help. It's a bit hit or miss.
Hi Steve, did you ever figure this out?? I get the same issue every time I run K=3 on my data.
Open to suggestions!
Same here. Here's some sample output from the bottom of the file. I'm not so worried about the numbers as I am about the fact that the job isn't finishing. It's been running for four hours and all the other versions are done, including ones with higher K values.
I'm running into the same issue. I am receiving 'nan' for Loglikelihood and delta for K=6 only. K=1-5 works fine as does K=7. This is quite odd. Any thoughts?
