[R-pkgs] admixr: An Interface for Running 'ADMIXTOOLS' Analyses

Dear R users,

I would like to introduce my R package, admixr, which provides an interface
for performing population genetic analyses using the ADMIXTOOLS suite of
command-line utilities: https://cran.r-project.org/package=admixr.

ADMIXTOOLS (https://www.genetics.org/content/192/3/1065) is a very popular
software in population genetics. However, because each of its command-line
programs requires configuration files specific to each analysis, it is very
cumbersome to use.

The admixr package wraps around ADMIXTOOLS utilities and presents them as
if they were simple R functions. It achieves this by creating all
intermediate files needed by ADMIXTOOLS and extracting relevant statistics
from generated output files, which all happens under the hood.

Extended tutorial and overview of the package can be found at:
Any feedback is welcome at: https://github.com/bodkan/admixr/issues

Best regards,
Martin Petr
