SNVMix is designed to detect single nucleotide variants from next generation sequencing data. SNVMix is a post-alignment tool. Given a pileup file (either Maq or Samtools format) as input and model parameters, SNVMix will output the probability that each position is one of three genotypes: aa (homozygous for the reference allele, where the reference is the genome the reads were aligned to), ab (heterozygous) and bb (homozygous for a non-reference allele). A tool for fitting the model using expectation maximization is also supplied (use -T option).
