Looks like it could be a missing python module. Can you try pip- or conda- installing m2zfast if that's the case?

Thanks for the suggestions! However, it doesnot work. is a file in the folder named src, which contains source code for locuszoom. I guess the programme cannot recognize somehow.

Can you try adding the src directory to the $PYTHONPATH variable?

Many Thanks! I am kind of confused about how to add directory to the PYTHONPATH. I don't really understand the codes in other websites. Can you please help me about it? Thank you again for your patience. Happy New Year.

The github page states locuszoom-standalone is not under active development, and recommends using the Javascript version:

Do the scripts under the "src" folder have the correct permissions? See Cannot get standalone version to run .
