PhaseByTransmission with more than just trio
Is it possible to use PhaseByTransmission with families that are larger than a single trio? I have a family with four siblings. If I include all of the siblings in the PED I get:
PhaseByTransmission - Caution: Family BMD has 6 members; At the moment Phase By Transmission only supports trios and parent/child pairs. Family skipped. ERROR MESSAGE: Bad input: No PED file passed or no trios found in PED file. Aborted.
And if I just include the one key trio with the proband, I get the following:
ERROR MESSAGE: Sample BMD006_R found in data sources but not in pedigree files with STRICT pedigree validation
There does not seem to be an accessible argument for relaxing the pedigree validation. Is there a way to use PhaseByTransmission with my larger family?
