Whole-genome association studies are generating unprecedented amounts of genotype data, frequently billions of genotypes per study, and require new and scalable computational approaches to address the storage, management, quality control, and genetic analysis. GLU is a framework and a software package that was designed around a set of novel conceptual approaches. GLU addresses the need for general and powerful tools that can scale to effectively handle trillions of genotypes.

How to Use

There are multiple versions of GLU available. An easy way of selecting the version is to use modules. To see the modules available, type

module avail glu

To select a module, type

module load glu/[ver]

where [ver] is the version of choice.

At the command line, type
