Introduction

In this tutorial we learn how to install bio-eagle on Kali Linux.

What is bio-eagle

Eagle estimates haplotype phase either within a genotyped cohort or using a phased reference panel. The basic idea of the Eagle1 algorithm is to harness identity-by-descent among distant relatives??which is pervasive at very large sample sizes but rare among smaller numbers of samples??to rapidly call phase using a fast scoring approach. In contrast, the Eagle2 algorithm analyzes a full probabilistic model similar to the diploid Li-Stephens model used by previous HMM-based methods.

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