A GWAS Dataset As an Example
The example dataset used in the KING tutorial can be downloaded here: ex.bgeno [6.7MB].
This file includes 11 HapMap samples (1 CEU trio, 2 YRI trios, 1
CHB and 1 JPT), each genotyped at 2,439,786 SNPs. In order to save the analysis time and disk space, a KING binary format
is used for the example data intead of the more straightfoward Merlin
format. One can use
"king -b ex.bgeno --merlin" to convert the downloaded binary data to a standard Merlin format.
