Question Posted 02/20/18:
Dear ADNI Genetics Core,

I have downloaded the "adni_mito_genomes.vcf" file and am trying to convert the file to PLINK format. However, my several tools (e.g., bcftools, PLINK, etc.) is erroring out because there is no VCF header read.

Do you have any insight into solving this? My goal is to convert this vcf to bed/bim/fam format.

please use "vcftools" to convert the vcf file to plink files.
