Hail

Zulip

Hail is an open-source, general-purpose, Python-based data analysis tool with additional data types and methods for working with genomic data.

Hail is built to scale and has first-class support for multi-dimensional structured data, like the genomic data in a genome-wide association study (GWAS).

Hail is exposed as a Python library, using primitives for distributed queries and linear algebra implemented in Scala, Spark, and increasingly C++.

See the documentation for more info on using Hail.

Community

Hail has been widely adopted in academia and industry, including as the analysis platform for the genome aggregation database and UK Biobank rapid GWAS. Learn more about Hail-powered science.

Contribute

If you'd like to discuss or contribute to the development of methods or infrastructure, please:

Hail uses a continuous deployment approach to software development, which means we frequently add new features. We update users about changes to Hail via the Discussion Forum. We recommend creating an account on the Discussion Forum so that you can subscribe to these updates as well.

Maintainer

Hail is maintained by a team in the Neale lab at the Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and the Analytic and Translational Genetics Unit of Massachusetts General Hospital.

Contact the Hail team at hail@broadinstitute.org.

Citing Hail

If you use Hail for published work, please cite the software. You can get a citation for the version of Hail you installed by executing:

import hail as hl
print(hl.citation())

Which will look like:
