FreeBayes is a high-performance, flexible, and open-source Bayesian genetic variant detector. It operates on BAM alignment files, which are produced by most contemporary short-read aligners.
In addition to substantial performance improvements over its predecessors (PolyBayes, GigaBayes, and BamBayes), it expands the scope of SNP and small-indel variant calling to populations of individuals with heterogeneous copy number. FreeBayes is currently under active development.
