ANGSD can calculate various summary statistics, and perform association mapping and population genetic analyses utilising the full information in next generation sequencing data.

ANGSD is available as a module on Apocrita.


To run the default installed version of ANGSD, simply load the angsd module:

$ module load angsd
$ angsd
    -> angsd version: 0.919 (htslib: 1.5) build(Jul  4 2017 15:08:56)
    -> Please use the website "" as reference
    -> Use -nThreads or -P for number of threads allocated to the program
Overview of methods:
    -GL     Estimate genotype likelihoods
    -doCounts   Calculate various counts statistics
    -doAsso     Perform association study
    -doMaf      Estimate allele frequencies

Example jobs

Here is an example job running with 2 cores and 5G memory:

#$ -cwd
#$ -l h_rt=2:00:00
#$ -l h_vmem=5G
#$ -pe smp 2

module load angsd

angsd -out outFile \
      -bam bam.list \
      -GL 1 \
      -doMaf 1 \
      -doMajorMinor 1 \
      -nThreads ${NSLOTS}

In this example, allele frequencies are estimated from genotype likelihoods with bam files as input using 2 threads.
