Summary

Program SeekParentF90 detect parent-offspring incompatibilities based on counts of Mendelian conflicts, as described in: Hayes 2010 JAS and Wiggans et al 2010 JDS

Originally was implemented as an option verify_parentage in the PreGSf90 program.

Pedigree files not need to be in a particular order

Alphanumeric identification of individuals in the pedigree and marker files are supported, with a default length of 20 characters (see below to change it).

Depending on number of markers different thresholds are used to check conflicts or to assign a parent.

For marker files with less than 130 SNP conflicts are based on numbers of conflict (i.e. 1) and for marker files with greater number of SNP, conflicts are based on the percentage of the total number of SNP (i.e. 1%)

Usage

seekparentf90 --pedfile <pedigree_file_name> --snpfile <snp_file> [ ... ]

In order to use the program two command arguments are needed: –pedfile and –snp_file to provide file names for pedigree and marker files.
The pedigree file is assumed to have 3 fields with identification for animal, sire and dam separated by at least one space.

The snp_file should contain two columns the first with the individual identification and the second column with the marker information.
The second column should start in the same position for all rows.

For each genotyped animal in the pedigree with a genotyped parent the relationship will be checked.

A non-match is declared if number of Mendelian conflicts is greater than the threshold.

It also seek for a putative parent based on genotypes and year of birth.

Optional arguments

--only_in_list <list_file>

This option will restrict calculations for individuals present in the <list_file>.

--yob

Indicate that year of birth should be read in the 4th column.
If yob information is present, it will be used to validate a putative parent.

--seeksire <sire_file>

Indicate a list of sires that will be used to search for a parent

--seekdam <sire_file>

Indicate a list of dams that will be used to search for a parent

--seeksire_in_ped

Create a list of genotyped sires from the pedigree and use it as a list to search for a parent.

--seekdam_in_ped

Create a list of genotyped dams from the pedigree and use it as a list to search for a parent

--seektype <n>

Set the which animals will be used to search for a parent

Codes:

  • 1: search only non-match parent (default)
  • 2: search all genotyped individuals
--excl_thr_prob <r>

set the exclusion probability as percentage of number of SNP to check parent-progeny conflicts,
default r is 1%

--excl_thr_nb <n>

set the number of SNP to check parent-progeny conflicts,
Default n is 1

--assign_thr_prob <r>

set the exclusion probability as percentage of number of SNP to assign parent to progeny,
default r is 0.5%

--assign_thr_nb <n>

set the of number of SNP to assign parent to progeny,
Default n is 1

--thr_call_rate <cr>

set the call rate threshold to exclude samples
Default cr is 0.90

--trio

Sire and dam information will be used to check Mendelian conflicts.
This allow to use not only homozygous markers.

--alpha_size <n>

change the maximun length of characters for alphanumeric Identifications

--maxsnp <n>

Set the maximum length of string for reading marker data from file, only necessary if the number of SNP is greater than 400,000

--no_print_not_match 

Exclude No-Match cases in output files for Seek parent options.

--full_log_checks

a full description of check will be provided in the output files.

--duplicate [thr]

check for duplicate samples based on a modified Hamming distance.
Optional parameter thr changes the default threshold to identify duplicate samples (default 0.9)

--find_duplicate <file> [thr]

check for duplicate samples only for individuals in the specified file across the full genotype file.
Optional parameter thr changes the default threshold to identify duplicate samples (default 0.9)

Chip and SNP information

Chips with different number of SNP can be used in the analyses.
In such case the genotype file must have the second column indicating the chip number and a map file must be provided to map SNP to chips.
Each sample in the genotype file should contain only the SNP present for that chip (see example below)

--chips <file>

This option should be used if more than one chip is used and/or to select SNP to be used in analyses.
The file indicate the name of the map file and should contains the following columns with names: SNP_ID, CHR, POS, and CHIP1, CHIP2..CHIPn.
Other columns could be present in the file.
The first line must have the column names.

If more than one chip is used then the number of SNP in common for two samples (base on both chips) will be used for check conflict and for discovering of parents.

Other options

--only_in_common

Select the SNP in common between all chips to be used in the analyses

--include_snp <file>

Only the list of SNP names in file will be included in the analyses

--exclude_snp <file> 

The list of SNP names in file will be excluded from analyses

--include_chr <n1 n2.. n>

Only SNP in Chromosomes n1 n2, etc will be included in the analyses

--exclude_chr <n1 n2.. n>

SNP in Chromosomes n1 n2, etc will be excluded from analyses

--chr_x <n>

Indicate that the n chromosome is the X chromosome and then SNP will be excluded from check of parent-progeny conflicts and parentage discovering

Example

Consider a genotype file with 4 samples and 3 chips with the following number of SNP:
Chip 1: 40 SNP
Chip 2: 14 SNP
Chip 3: 20 SNP
