BayPass v2.1

BayPass is a population genomics software which is primarily aimed at identifying genetic markers subjected to selection and/or associated to population-specific covariates (e.g., environmental variables, quantitative or categorical phenotypic characteristics). The underlying models explicitly account for (and may estimate) the covariance structure among the population allele frequencies that originates from the shared history of the populations under study.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/baypass/v2.1

An example command to include in your job script:

g_baypass -npop <NumPops> -gfile <DataFile> -nthreads <NumCores>

There are some example files in the directory ${BAYPASS_ROOT}/examples and an R script in the directory ${BAYPASS_ROOT}/utils.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
