plink expects as input the data from SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) chips of many individuals and their phenotypical description of a disease. It finds associations of single or pairs of DNA variations with a phenotype and can retrieve SNP annotation from an online source. SNPs can evaluated individually or as pairs for their association with the disease phenotypes. The joint investigation of copy number variations is supported. A variety of statistical tests have been implemented. plink1.9 is a comprehensive update of plink with new algorithms and new methods, faster and less memory consumer than the first plink. Please note: The executable was renamed to plink1.9 because of a name clash. Please read more about this in /usr/share/doc/README.Debian.
