When more than two possible values exist in a field. You may
want to enter only one of those values in either the "Case" or
the "Control" boxes, leaving the other box untouched (that is,
leaving the "[Select Item]" option there). By doing so, those
samples that match your explicit selection are being defined as,
say, Cases (or Controls, if you selected so). All the remaining
samples having other values will be used as Controls.
If a blank is selected " ", that means that there are Samples with no value in the field and that those are being selected as a
case or control.
4. You can select Batch mode.
This is a fundamental time-saving feature. Selecting one of the fields in
the Samples or SNP table, SNPator will run this process as many
times as different values are in that fields, using each time only those samples or SNPs that have each of the values. For instance, if you
have defined your samples in the "sex" field as "M" or "W", selecting
"sex" as the attribute of the Sample batch mode will result in having
two runs of the Linkage format retrieval, taking separately men and
If you select at the same time sample and SNP batch fields, you are
going to obtain as many runs of the process as all possible
combinations of the values of samples and SNPs in the fields you
