Hi, I am new in this study. If you could elaborate steps, it would be helpful. I am using PLINK, it generates .bed,.bim, .fam with the following command.

./plink --vcf <filename> --keep-allele-order --allow-extra-chr 0 --make-bed --out <filename>

Furthermore, I tried the following command:

./plink --bfile <filenames> --recode --tab --out <output filename>

The documentation of plink is excellent. Show some effort and start reading.
