Roslin Bioinformatics - Genotype Checker
Downloading the application
The software is freely available under terms of our licence.
The software should be treated as a development prototype, and as such may not be bug free. Stable releases will have been more robustly user tested, Beta releases incorporate new features which may not have been heavily tested.
You can either install the software automatically using Java Web Start, or you can download the application JAR file and run from command line or using appropriate memory settings available in the script files. Mac users can download a bundled App. (See Running GenotypeChecker for instructions.)
For checking large datasets you should use the highest memory available on your system, unfortunately most Windows systems can only use a maximum of 1G RAM for Java applications.
Java Web Start links
You are recommended to run the version with the highest memory available. For most Windows systems this is 1G, though 64bit systems should allow higher memory. Attempting to start the application with higher memory than allowed by your system will fail - try a lower setting.
