  1. Error: Sex must be M, F or ?

    Hi, I'm trying to run FRANz on my own data for the first time and I'm getting the following error message: "Error: [while parsing file WPPfranzIn.txt,line 4] INFILE; sex must be M, F or ?". I had a close look at my infile and the 5th column does indeed only contain the characters M, F or ?. Any idea what might be causing the error? Here are the first 15 columns of the first 30 lines of my file:
    1 16397 / WestPencilPine
    443 WPP
    P29A06-Y06 1 2006 ? ? 4/4 2/2 2/2 2/2 2/2
    P29A07-Y06 1 2006 ? ?…

    • Creating a pedigree file

      Hi, I am trying to reconstruct the pedigree in the cacao tree, with 4600 SNPs and 474 genotyped individulas, from different generations (Founders, up to third generation). I know all the pedigrees, but my plan is deleting some and observe how close, FRANz will be from the true pedigree. I should point out that, I have no experience with FRANz, but I am able to run it with a sample of my data. Now I want to include the pedigree information and have some questions:
      1. Despite I know the whole pedigree, I genotyped mainly the founders and thrid generation…

                • Cannot open input file

                  Hi,
                  This might be a stupid question, but where should the input file be for the program to work? I've copied the example file 'simpsons.dat' into the folder where FRANz.exe is located. But when I follow the instructions in the manual to run the program, I only get a 'cannot open input file' message...

                  Any advice?

                  Kind regards
                  Willem

                  • SNP Data

                    Hello,

                    Might be a silly question, but I am trying to reconstruct a pedigree for a single population of ~100 plants, with 3000-5000 SNPs. I have to convert the A/C/T/G into numerical 1/2/3/4 data for FRANz, but is there specific requirement for this conversion?

                    I tried with the above conversion (and default setting as a test) and all loci (in a 3164 snp data set) were determined to be "uninformative" (and yes, I generated a csv file and used the online converter). I have a hard time believing that all the loci are uninformative and am wondering if how I…
