Summary: A rich set of tools have recently been developed for performing genome-wide genotyping of tandem repeats (TRs). However, standardized tools for downstream analysis of these results are lacking. To facilitate TR analysis applications, we present TRTools, a Python library and suite of command line tools for filtering, merging and quality control of TR genotype files. TRTools utilizes an internal harmonization module, making it compatible with outputs from a wide range of TR genotypers.
Availability and implementation: TRTools is freely available at https://github.com/gymreklab/TRTools. Detailed documentation is available at https://trtools.readthedocs.io.
Supplementary information: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
