beagle.27Jan18.7e1.jar, Version 4.1
Plink v1.90b4.9
VCF: fileformat=VCFv4.2
Map file: GRch37 version

I created VCF file using plink from .ped and .map file as input.

plink --file merlin_CHR22 --recode-vcf --out vcf_22

I run into an error while performing imputation for CHR22, ona small region of 5MB, as:

java -Xmx1000m -jar beagle.27Jan18.7e1.jar gt=vcf_22.vcf out=test ref=chr22.haplotypes.vcf.gz chrom=22:0-500000


Start time: 05:40 PM EDT on 04 Apr 2018
Command line: java -Xmx889m -jar beagle.jar
ERROR: invalid ALT allele at 22:17 [X]
ERROR: invalid ALT allele at 22:17 [X]

Any suggestions/ideas to fix this?

Have you tried BEAGLE 4.0 to see if you get the same error? Might be worth a shot. I had a similar error - sorry, can't remember it exactly, and I was able to use BEAGLE 4.0 without the error.
