limix 1.0.9

A flexible and fast mixed model toolbox.

TODO for 1.1.0

  • [ ] limix.qtl.qtl_test_lmm: 10k by 500k datasets, low memory footprint (i.e., <=60 GB).
  • [ ] limix.qtl.qtl_test_glmm: 10k by 500k datasets, low memory footprint (i.e., <=60 GB).
  • [ ] Both limix.qtl.qtl_test_glmm and limix.qtl.qtl_test_lmm should accept and take advantage of dask array.
  • [ ] limix.qtl.qtl_test_lmm: show progress bar like limix.qtl.qtl_test_glmm.
  • [ ] limix.qtl.qtl_test_lmm, limix.qtl.qtl_test_glmm: raise exception for wrong parameters (NaN, Inf) and coerce sequences to numpy arrays.
  • [ ] Standardize arguments, set labels, set title, set colors, for plotting functions: limix.plot.plot_manhattan, limix.plot.qqplot, limix.plot.plot_kinship.
  • [ ] Define ConvergenceError exception to be raised whenever our methods doesn’t converge.
  • [ ] Convert documentation style to numpy style, of every function.

TODO for 1.2.0

  • [ ] Nicely print a summary of a QTL and heritability result.
  • [ ] I/O for BGEN file format.
  • [ ] Add full-world QTL and heritability analysis into readthedocs.


Genomic analyses require flexible models that can be adapted to the needs of the user. Limix is a flexible and efficient linear mixed model library with interfaces to Python.

Limix includes methods for - single-variant association and interaction testing, - variance decompostion analysis with linear mixed models, - association and interaction set tests, - as well as different utils for statistical analysis, basic i/o and plotting.

A description of the public interface is found at

iPython notebook tutorials are available from github repository:

These tutorials can also be viewed using the ipython notebook viewer:



The recommended way of installing it is via pip

pip install limix
