I am very new to programming and working with omics data in general, but I am trying to convert a VCF file to a BED file in my terminal on MacOS. I was interested in downloading the BEDOPS tool package and using the vcf2bed command. I then downloaded the latest version of BEDOPS, per instructions on their website, and my computer said the download was successful. However, when I go to use the vcf2bed command in my terminal, it is not recognized! Is this because the BEDOPS package downloaded somewhere other than my current directory? If so, how can I make BEDOPS work in the directory I am in?
Many thanks for any help!
