VCFtools is a program package designed for working with VCF files, such as those generated by the 1000 Genomes Project. The aim of VCFtools is to provide easily accessible methods for working with complex genetic variation data in the form of VCF files.


VCFtools can be activated using the module file:

module load apps/vcftools/0.1.14

This will both add the binary files to the $PATH and the Perl module to $PERL5LIB.

Installation notes

VCFtools was compiled using the script, the module file is 0.1.14.
