Prettybase File Format

A polymorphism data file of this type with N individuals and M sites has the following format:
 

pos_1 dip_id_1  allele1a_1 allele1b_1
pos_1 dip_id_2  allele2a_1 allele2b_1
pos_1 dip_id_3  allele3a_1 allele3b_1
. .  . .

. .  . .
pos_1 dip_id_N  alleleNa_1 alleleNb_1
pos_2 dip_id_1  allele1a_2 allele1b_2
pos_2 dip_id_2  allele2a_2 allele2b_2
pos_2 dip_id_3  allele3a_2 allele3b_2

Format Notes
  • The file must be formatted in simple text only. This can easily be achieved by creating the file in MS Excel and saving the file as 'Text (Tab delimited)'.
  • Each line of the file has the following format: site position, individual ID, first allele, second allele.
