Introduction

Minimac4 is a latest version in the series of genotype imputation software - preceded by Minimac3 (2015), Minimac2 (2014), minimac (2012) and MaCH (2010). Minimac4 is a lower memory and more computationally efficient implementation of the original algorithms with negligible fall in imputation quality.
