PLINK help

http://www.unix.com – Hi Plink users, I am very new in GWAS and decided to use PLINK for this. But I am struggling with file formats. I have one exome data with 200000 SNPs in it. But it is in .txt format. But all the necessary fields are there in different columns. Can you please suggest me how I can create the plink .bed file? Is there any direct way to create .bed file from .txt? I tried to create a .bim and a .fam file following the instruction in PLINK website Binary files (BED/BIM/FAM) Is there any way to create .bed file from these two (.bim & .fam) files? Please let em know. Thanks a lot, (HowTos)
