LocusZoom Standalone

This repository is for the command line (standalone) version of LocusZoom, an application for creating regional plots from genome-wide association studies built in Python and R.

Documentation for this program is available on our wiki:


This version of LocusZoom is no longer under active development. Bug fixes and small updates may be made, though it is unlikely.

A new web-based interactive version of LocusZoom is currently under active development. Please see the locuszoom.js github site for information on using it on your own sites, or see a preview of it in action at

Database contains required data for LocusZoom to function, though you can skip it if you are already creating your own.

LD files are entirely optional - you can calculate LD instead from your own genotype files (--ld-vcf), or not at all (--no-ld).

A full list of changes for each version can be found in the changelog.
