I'm trying to use vcf files from the 1000 Human Genomes Project to establish distance between populations, most recent common ancestor and a timeline showing when the populations diverged - all to be shown in a phylogenetic tree.
I'm very new to bioinforatics and am told using a program like Plink is best for a non-programmer such as myself.
Does anyone have experience with this kind of operation and would you be able to tell me how to get started? I have the VCF files but I'm not sure how to use them in Plink.
Thanks in advance for any help!
