Kinship is an exploration of some [hopefully] new algorithms for determining the closeness of genetic sequences.

Currently the project is in the design phase.


  • Runs on POSIX compliant systems. [UNIX, Linux, the BSDs and the like.]
  • Currently planned to impliement code in Ocaml.
  • Others are currently TBD.

    Loki was the father of Hel, Fenrir, and Jörmungandr among others. All kin but quite a genetic spread between a god, wolf and serpent. Seems fitting somehow.


    Why Oðin and Loki as mascots? They are our favorite Norse gods. One of us looks sort of like Oðin and the other admires Loki's sly ways.
