Re: Unmatched MBF data value while analyzing SNP markers

Dear Fikret,

Without seeing the detail of the data file and mbf file, I cannot be definite.

One possability is that you are using the clone identities in the mbf file but you need to use the coded clone values. For example, your data file has identies
101, 9, 11 for the first record. If this was the first line of the pedigree, then
the coded order would probably be


so marker data for individual named '101'
would need to have code '3' in the mbf file

So the message suggests to me that there is data for the 100th clone (as ordered by the pedigree) but there is no clone '100' in the mbf file.
Indeed, it appears 101 is the lowest value.

If this is the case, on initial solution might be to duplicate the 'clone'
filed in the data file (say call the copy CLONEID
and then refer to CLONEID in the !MBF line.

If this is not the issue, I'll be happy to consider further.
