I have about one thousand vcf files, and this is a ridiculous amount to type by hand into vcf-merge. Is there a way to merge all of these files without typing each name?
I tried putting all of the files into a text file and using stdin, but vcf-merge doesn't support this, i.e.
vcf-merge < list.txt > merge.vcf
Maybe this problem stems from creating this many vcf files to begin with. When using vcf-tools, I need to select multiple locations (i.e.--from-bp 100 --to-bp 200) which means I need to run vcf-tools for each location. Is there a better way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any help!
