Default vcf file opening issues with a text editor


I have created a vcf file which i can open using bcf tools in the terminal but not in the windows using a text editor. I can see the header information of the vcf file but the actual variant calls appear as symbols. Can someone help with this.

You probably have a bcf file rather than a vcf.

You can use bcftools to convert it if needed.

bcftools view input.bcf > output.vcf
