I have been trying to create BSgenome for Bos_taurus_UMD_3.1.1 over a week but haven't succeeded.

I keep the error message below.

Error: Line starting '>1 ...' is malformed!


I am really frustrated now because I'm not fluent in both English and R language.

Can somebody explain what is the problem and/or how to create a custom BSgenome step by step?

Of course you cannot call forgeBSgenomeDataPkg() directly on a 2bit or FASTA file. You need to prepare a seed file first and then call forgeBSgenomeDataPkg() on the seed file. All this is explained in the BSgenomeForge vignette. Please see the thread you started on the bioc-devel mailing list for the follow-up on this:
