Plink bed files

Federico Calboli
Hi All,

does anyone know how to import binary .bed files generated by Plink (http://pngu.mgh.harvard.edu/~purcell/plink/ 
) into R? the Plink FAQ explains how to conver other types of files,  
not the .bed.

Cheers,

Federico

Hi Frederico,
   You will likely have more luck asking about Bioinformatics related
questions on the Bioconductor list,

you might look at the rtracklayer package which can import bed files, if
they really are bed files, and otherwise you would have to get the file
format and write your own parser.
