using fcgene software to convert bimbam files into plink format using command line
fcgene --wgd mydosage --pos mymap --oformat plink --out myresult
it seems that reads the dosage file correctly but is given an error
Reading file "mymap": EROOR: There should be 5 or 6 columns in each row of file: mymap but this is not the case in 1th row.
according to the software, position file should be a comma delimited file with 3 columns, i.e, example.pos
snp1, 1, 1 snp2, 2, 1 snp3, 3, 1
so that is how the mymap is being formatted
