#' format microsat data from allelic to locus format
#'
#'
#'
#' @details takes allelic microsatellite data (two columns per locus, individuals in rows) and
#' transforms it into a one column per locus format, whereby the alleles are concetenated
#' with a given separator.
#'
#'
#' @param genotypes microsatellite data.frame in allelic format (two columns per locus).
#' @param sep_alleles how should the two alleles be concatenated? (defaults to "")
