Genetic analysis toolbox using mixed models

Project description


Travis AppVeyor Documentation Forum

Genomic analyses require flexible models that can be adapted to the needs of the user.

Limix is a flexible and efficient linear mixed model library with interfaces to Python. It includes methods for

  • Single-variant association and interaction testing
  • Variance decompostion analysis with linear mixed models
  • Association and interaction set tests
  • Different utils for statistical analysis, basic i/o, and plotting.

We have an extensive documentation of the library. If you need further help or want to discuss anything related to limix, please, join our forum 💬 and have a chat with us 😃. In case you have found a bug, please, report it creating an issue.


NOTE: We will be maintaining limix 2.0.x for a while, in case you find some missing feature in limix 3.0.x. If that is the case, please, type pip install "limix <3,>=2" in your terminal.

Installation is easy and works on macOS, Linux, and Windows:

pip install limix

If you already have Limix but want to upgrade it to the latest version:

pip install limix --upgrade
