I'm attempting to extract sample IDs from an m3vcf file just like I would with VCF, with a command like:
bcftools view --samples XXXXX Estimates.m3vcf.gz
but then I get an error:
Failed to open Estimates.m3vcf.gz: unknown file type
My instinct is that bcftools doesn't support the m3vcf type.
is there an automated way that I could select certain sample IDs from an M3VCF file?
