geNomad is a tool to identify virus and plasmid genomes from nucleotide sequences. It provides state-of-the-art classification performance and can be used to quickly find mobile genetic elements from whole metagenomes.


geNomad is significantly faster than similar tools and can be used to process large datasets.

Taxonomic assignment

The identified viruses are assigned to taxonomic lineages that follow the latest ICTV taxonomy release.

Score calibration

By infering the sample composition, geNomad can calibrate the sequence scores to provide estimated false discovery rates.

Coming soon!#

geNomad will be available in the coming weeks. If you want to talk about it, feel free to contact me:
