Zusammenfassung
MotivationResearch projects involving population genomics routinely need to store genotyping information, population allele counts, combine files from different samples, query the data and export it to various formats. This is often done using bespoke in-house scripts, which cannot be easily adapted to new projects and seldom constitute reproducible workflows.ResultsWe introduce glactools, a set of command-line utilities that can import data from genotypes or population-wide allele counts into an intermediate representation, compute various operations on it and export the data to several file formats used by population genetics software. This intermediate format can take two forms, one to store per-individual genotype likelihoods and a second for allele counts from one or more individuals. glactools allows users to perform operations such as intersecting datasets, merging individuals into populations, creating subsets, perform queries (e.g. return sites where a given population does not share an allele with a second one) and compute summary statistics to answer biologically relevant questions.Availability and implementationglactools is freely available for use under the GPL. It requires a C ++ compiler and the htslib library. The source code and the instructions about how to download test data are available on the website (https://grenaud.github.io/glactools/).Contactgabriel.reno@gmail.comSupplementary informationSupplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
