A toolset for working with human genetic variation data
PLINK/SEQ is an open-source C/C++ library for working with human genetic variation data. The specific focus is to provide a platform for analytic tool development for variation data from large-scale resequencing and genotyping projects, particularly whole-exome and whole-genome studies. It is independent of (but designed to be complementary to) the existing PLINK package.
The latest version of PLINK/SEQ (v0.10, released 14-July-2014) is available on the download page. This page contains source (C/C++) code as well as pre-compiled binary execuatbles for Linux (x86_64) and MacOS (built on Mavericks).
- This overview provides a high-level description of the aims, scope and design of the library.
