Hello, I used Beagle instead of Michigan Imputation Server and it works with me.

beagle provided a java tool called conform-gt https://faculty.washington.edu/browning/conform-gt.html

a program for making alleles in a VCF file to be consistent with a reference VCF file, see an example:

java -jar conform-gt.24May16.cee.jar gt=input.vcf.gz chrom=\$i ref=chr22.1kg.phase3.v5a.EUR.vcf.gz out=output.chr22.beagle.vcf.gz

Never used beagle. I will check this out and see. Thanks a lot

Hi,

did you try to use any of those tools and did they work for you? I am having the same problem.

I used Beagle it self and it works with me with no issues like the server.

Hi Sharon,

Good to hear that! Can you please post all steps you used to do imputation on Beagle?

Thanks

Hi Guo, I also want to try this command. May I ask where do you find the reference VCF file?
