Where to Download

From version 4.13.6, RAREMETALWORKER and RAREMETAL are distributed within the same package.

  • University of Michigan CSG users can go to the following:


You can clone or download from Raremetal git hub page: https://github.com/traxexx/Raremetal

Since v4.13.6, MAC and WINDOWS version are no longer updated. Please download old versions from here:


Calculating Odds Ratio from RAREMETALWORKER output

  • If you want to estimate Odds Ratios of variants analyzed by RAREMETALWORKER, the script calculateOddsRatio.pl can help you augment RAREMETALWORKER output with estimated odds ratio to the last column.
  • The script can also be found in the RAREMETAL package 4.13.6 and later, under directory raremetal/script/calculateOddsRatio.pl.

How to Compile

  • gfortran is necessary to build RAREMETAL. If your system does not have it yet, please go to GNU gfortran for download.
  • If you choose to build from the source files, you could start from decompress the package using the following command:
 prompt> tar xvf Raremetal_linux.tgz
 prompt> cd Raremetal
  • If you prefer to build from scratch, then do the following:
 prompt> make clean
 prompt> make
 #This builds RAREMETAL and RAREMETALWORKER under bin/ directory. 
  • If you prefer to build individual tool:
 prompt> cd Raremetal/raremetalworker/
 prompt> make
 #This will build RAREMETALWORKER under raremetal/bin/ directory.
 prompt> cd Raremetal/raremetal/
 prompt> make
 #This will build RAREMETAL under raremetal/bin/ directory.
  • If your compiler is adaptable to openmp (parallel computing), then use the following to build RAREMETALWORKER that allows parallel computing. For more about openmp, please refer to openMP.
 prompt> cd raremetalworker/src
 prompt> make openmp
 #This will build RAREMETALWORKER under raremetal/bin/ directory.
  • If you prefer to use the binary file downloaded above, then no compiling is needed, but it is not guaranteed to work due to system and library requirements.
