LDlinkR: Calculating Linkage Disequilibrium (LD) in Human Population Groups of Interest

Provides access to the 'LDlink' API (<https://ldlink.nci.nih.gov/?tab=apiaccess>) using the R console. This programmatic access facilitates researchers who are interested in performing batch queries in 1000 Genomes Project (2015) <doi:10.1038/nature15393> data using 'LDlink'. 'LDlink' is an interactive and powerful suite of web-based tools for querying germline variants in human population groups of interest. For more details, please see Machiela et al. (2015) <doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/btv402>.
