Sib-pair Command: read locus merlin


ClassData Declaration command
Nameread locus merlin
Arguments <locus file name> [xli] [snp]

Read locus names, types from a Merlin-format locus (.dat) file. Markers are treated as sex-linked when the xli modifier is used. Markers are stored as SNPs when the snp modifier is used, with reduced memory consumption.

Example:

>> file cat /main/home/davidD/sim/GxE/merlin.dat
M marker008
M marker009
M marker010
T dBP
C env

>> read locus merlin merlin.dat

Read in names of    5 loci from locus file.
