This program is written in R ( The package has four files. The analysis functions are in ATOM.r. The other three files provide example data and code for running ATOM.

To run ATOM, you need to prepare a reference data set for the region of interest. The example data set was extracted from the HapMap.

Please see the file ATOM.r for detailed explanations of the arguments of ATOM().
