    1212The only tool to have an easy (yet not completely correct) conversion from PED to VCF is the beta version of PLINK/Seq available -along with instructions- here: http://www.broadinstitute.org/gsa/wiki/index.php/Converting_ped_to_vcf

    1920The initial VCF file produced by PLINK 1.08 does contain the right information, however it is not actually in VCF format. The problem here is that PLINK files specify the Ref/Alt alleles relative to the dataset where VCF specifies the Ref/Alt alleles relative to the Human Genome Reference it is aligned on. To correct this VCF file, it is necessary to modify the initial VCF file so that the alleles are relative to the Human Genome Reference and not the dataset anymore.
