[R] Help manipulating 23andme data in R - reproducing relationship results

(No response necessary)

What struck me about this post was the apparent mismatch: the OP
seemed not to have a clue where to begin. Maybe he somehow has been
assigned or chose a task for which his skills and background are
inadequate. This is not really a criticism: if someone told me to make
a dining room set, my reply would be: "Either find someone else or see
you in about a year after which I may have learned enough to attempt
the task. "

So maybe the OP should give up looking for internet advice altogether
and find someone local to work with?

And, of course, apologies if I have misinterpreted.
