MINIMAC

Record added by Jurg Ott (the original Rockefeller list)

Description

minimac is a low memory, computationally efficient implementation of the MaCH algorithm for genotype imputation. It is designed to work on phased genotypes and can handle very large reference panels with hundreds or thousands of haplotypes. The name has two parts. The first, “mini”, refers to the modest amount of computational resources it requires. The second, “mac”, is short hand for MaCH, our widely used algorithm for genotype imputation.
