The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) gene family plays a key role in the immune response and thus is crucial in many biomedical and clinical settings. Utilizing Sanger sequencing, the gold standard technology for HLA typing, enables accurate identification of HLA alleles with high-resolution. However, there exists a current hurdle that only commercial software such as UType, SBT-Assign and SBTEngine, instead of any open source tools could be applied to perform HLA typing based on Sanger sequencing. To fill the gap, we developed a stand-alone, open-source and cross-platform software, known as SOAPTyping, for Sanger-based typing in HLA class I and II alleles. Availability and implementation: SOAPTyping is implemented in C++ language and Qt framework, which is supported on Windows, Mac and Linux. Source code and detailed documentation are accessible via the project GitHub page: https://github.com/BGI-flexlab/SOAPTyping.
