Hi, this is my first post so sorry if it doesn't yet conform to accepted format.
I want to run downloaded VCF files from DNA Land from several individuals comprising a large pedigree (genealogy context).
I would like to get a linux distribution on my windows 10 OS laptop.
But I'm also thinking I may need a top end "gaming" computer (msi GS65, i7, 16GB, 512GB SSD, NVIDIA GTX1070, etc.)
Will BEAGLE (Refined IBD) run on this system?
I'm also planning to use R package (GENLIB) to do structural pedigree analysis and assume this system would accommodate that as well.
I'm an "old school" geneticist (cloning and mapping disease genes in the 80s) but only recently "bootstrapping" into the stratosphere of computational genetics.
Any ideas/advice welcome. At the moment I know just enough to be dangerous, or get into trouble....
