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.
Please note: The executable was renamed to plink1
because of a name clash.  Please read more about this
in /usr/share/doc/README.Debian.
