Nextstrain is an open-source project to harness the scientific and public health potential of pathogen genome data. We provide a continually-updated view of publicly available data alongside powerful analytic and visualization tools for use by the community. Our goal is to aid epidemiological understanding and improve outbreak response.

Nextstrain provides an open-source toolkit enabling the bioinformatics and visualization you see on this site. Tweak our analyses and create your own using the same tools we do. We aim to empower the wider genomic epidemiology and public health communities.

Open source datasets and toolkits include:

Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) (they are incorporating nCoV genomes as soon as they are shared and providing analyses and situation reports), other infectious disease pathogens, community submitted datasets, and accompanying narratives
