I am trying to find QTLs in the bovine genome (downloaded as bed-file from the CattleQTLdb here: http://www.animalgenome.org/cgi-bin/QTLdb/BT/download?file=bedUMD_3.1) that intersect with candidate lnc's I've filtered out with FEElnc.
I have unzipped the file and tried the bedtools intersect command:
$ bedtools intersect -a QTL-file -b candidate-lnc-file > intersect_qtl_lnc
but I get this Error-message: * ERROR: too many digits/characters for integer conversion in string . Exiting...
Has anyone encountered this problem before? Is there an additional conversion step I need to make? I appreciate your efforts! thx
