I have existing data on diploid samples, their SNPs, and Illumina AB format values for each SNP. Given a new sample, I want to determine how closely it matches the genotype of any of my existing samples. I'd really appreciate anyone's thought on how to approach this. Is it a case of repeating the pairwise comparison of the given sample by aligning SNPs and seeing if the allele values match? Are there any python or R modules that it would be best for me to use for this?

Many thanks for your help - Derek

You could just aim to do an identity-by-state analysis.
