[R-pkgs] admixr: An Interface for Running 'ADMIXTOOLS' Analyses
Dear R users,
I would like to introduce my R package, admixr, which provides an interface
for performing population genetic analyses using the ADMIXTOOLS suite of
command-line utilities: https://cran.r-project.org/package=admixr.
ADMIXTOOLS (https://www.genetics.org/content/192/3/1065) is a very popular
software in population genetics. However, because each of its command-line
programs requires configuration files specific to each analysis, it is very
cumbersome to use.
The admixr package wraps around ADMIXTOOLS utilities and presents them as
if they were simple R functions. It achieves this by creating all
intermediate files needed by ADMIXTOOLS and extracting relevant statistics
from generated output files, which all happens under the hood.
