Using plink, I have been asked to perform logistic regression, calculating 95% confidence intervals, using covariate and identify the value for lambda. The covariate is supplied as a .txt file.

I have read some papers, mainly "Basic statistical analysis in genetic case-control studies” (Clarke et al. 2011, Nature Protocols 6: 121-33),but I am not sure which input to follow.

Thanks

How will this help me identify the value for lambda?

In the cited paper, they mention an inflation factor λ, if this is what you after then use --adjust together with --logistic option and it will create a log file with lambda value. Then this value can be used with output modifiers command --lambda.

Note: Add --ci 0.95 option to get 95% confidence intervals.
