I try to use an R package called detectRUNS, and the documentation suggest I have to use "the Plink ped and map files" to run it. https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/detectRUNS/vignettes/detectRUNS.vignette.html#importing-data-from-external-files
However, consulting the PLINK documentation, it seems that the ped and map files are input for PLINK, and not an output. https://zzz.bwh.harvard.edu/plink/data.shtml
I am very confused about these files, and wonder if it is possible to create them from a VCF file for example?
Thanks for your help!
