Hello Biostars, It's my first post in here. I need to know, is there some way to convert .csv file, that I downloaded from TellmeGen , to .vcf file format? It looks pretty same, but .csv is comma-separated, and there is no header lines in it. How can I make it looks like classical vcf file? Thank you for your answers! The file looks like this:

No. 1 10:43597877_CNV_RET_e3_20 Chromosome 10 Position 43597877 Genotype GG.

I'm guessing you opened the CSV file in Excel and copy pasted the content here, because the content does not look like CSV - there are no commas.

The information content in that record is too low for it to be transformed into a well formed VCF file. Why are you looking to get a VCF anyway?

Yes, that is not a CSV, seems to be regular text, please clarify.

To generate a VCF you will need to parse the file and the Genome sequence used to do the variant call or array design, use the VCF format spec definition to create a translator.
