Gencrypt 1.0.0

:: DESCRIPTION

Gencrypt is a lightweight tool that allows researchers to securely compare individual-level data from between genomic datasets by utilizing a class of security algorithms known as one-way cryptographic hashes. By converting individual-level genotypes into one-way hashes, researchers can indirectly compare SNP data and correctly identify identical individuals between datasets without infringing on IRB guidelines or patient privacy concerns.
