ATHLATES is a software package for determining HLA genotypes for individuals from Illumina exome sequencing data. ATHLATES has been tested with 101 base paired end reads using standard whole exome kits but should be applicable to any paired sequencing of similar or greater length and accuracy that covers the HLA exons with sufficient depth (including whole genome shotgun and RNA-Seq data).
