I don't know a conversion package to create ped/map files as output.
However, the file format ist pretty straightforward (for a definition
again recommend the excellent PLINK website, see
without a converter it should be easy to create. For my annotations, I
once downloaded the SNP 6.0 annotation file from Affymetrix and simply
extracted relevant data from there. Otherwise, you can get annotation
online from Affymetrix NetAffx.
For the "numeric genotype code to genotype" conversion, first
(using t() ) your results data frame so that SNPs are in columns. Then
coerce each column to a factor. Levels for this factor (retrieve with
levels() ) should then be "1", "2" and "3". Then replace the levels
the genotypes ( e.g. levels(my.factor) <- c("A A","A B","B B"), or
rather with the SNP alleles from the annotation file), attach the
necessary pedigree information (see above) using cbind() and save as a
table. That's your ped file. For the map file, extract chromosome
position and rs number from the annotation file and save it in the
format described in

Would be helpful, if there is anybody who can help me out. For this I
need an map file and an peed- file. I read something about an
"advanced" ped-file like this:
