Minnesota Supercomputing Institute
With regards to the safety measures put in place by the university to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 virus, at this time all MSI systems will remain operational and can be accessed remotely as usual. The only planned outages concern our in-person Helpdesk and tutorials. More information, as well as alternative remote support options, can be found at MSI COVID-19 Continuity Plan

libsequence is a C++ library designed to aid writing applications for genomics and evolutionary genetics. A large amount of the library is dedicated to the analysis of "single nucleotide polymorphism", or SNP data. The library is intended to be viewed as a "BioC++" akin to the bioperl project, although the scope of libsequence is limited in comparison. Much of the bioperl project concerns parsing the output of various bioinformatics programs, and the management of databases of biological data. perl is a good language for such things, and libsequence tries not to re-invent the wheel. Rather, the focus is on biological computation, such as the analysis of SNP data and sequence divergence, and the analysis of data generated from coalescent simulation.
To use this software in an interactive Linux environment, run the commands:
module load libsequence
