## What is LIMIX?

LIMIX is a flexible and efficient linear mixed model library with interfaces to Python and other scripting languages.

By Christoph Lippert (lippert@microsoft.com),
Franceso Paolo Casale (casale@ebi.ac.uk), and Oliver Stegle (stegle@ebi.ac.uk)


## Philosophy

Genomic analyses require flexible models that can be adapted to the needs of the user.
LIMIX is smart about how particular models are fit to safe computational cost.


## Installation:

* Recommended is an installation via pypi.
* pip install limix will work on most systems.

* If you want to install LIMIX from source you require:
Python:
- scons, scipy, numpy

* Swig:
- swig 2.0 or higher
