VCF to GDS workflow converts VCF or BCF files into Genomic Data Structure
(GDS) format. GDS files are required by all workflows utilizing the GENESIS or
SNPRelate R packages.

Filename requirements:
The input file names should follow the pattern chr.
For example: 1KG_phase3_subset_chr1.vcf.gz
Some of the tools inside the workflow infer the chromosome number from the
file by expecting this pattern of file name.
