Hi I'm really new to bioinformatics, but I'm trying to learn how to use Docker to use linux and bcftools.
I need some help annotating a smaller .vcf file using the INFO column of a larger .vcf file. The manual for bcftools is not really clear to me on what options I need and the syntax for those options. I believe I need to create a file that just says "INFO" in it to take all the info from that file and annotate the smaller one but I don't think that's correct. I'm not sure what file type it's supposed to be, could someone help me out with this?
I think the syntax is:
bcftools annotate -c largefile.vcf infofile.vcf smallfile.vcf right?
Honestly, I'm lost. I really need some help quick.
Thanks so much.
