dataplink

December 18, 2012   

dataplink is a simple program for importing recoded data from [plink][1]. Dataplink imports genotypic data from .ped files and also imports variable names (snp names) from .map files.

Installation

ssc install dataplink

Usage

Data from plink must be exported using the following commands:

  • –recode OR –recode12
  • –tab

Syntax

dataplink using "/path/to/file/without/extension"

Important!

When you specify the _filename_ do not use extensions (i.e. do not add __.ped__ or __.map__). Dataplink looks for a .map and .ped file of the same name. </div> #### Limits STATA SE and MP flavors support a maximum of 32,767 variables while IC supports 2,047. This means you can only import ~32,000 SNPs with SE/MP or ~2,000 with IC. [1]: http://pngu.mgh.harvard.edu/~purcell/plink/
