The Application specific authentication file ".ukbkey" must also be present in the current directory.


Before runing the script change the extension from ".txt" to ".sh" and do "chmod 700" to make it executable. Note that it will produce some harmless error messages for the imputed "higher" chromosomes data which does not exist.
