geNomad is a tool that identifies 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 genomes, metagenomes, or metatranscriptomes.
geNomad is significantly faster than similar tools and can be used to process large datasets.
The identified viruses are assigned to taxonomic lineages that follow the latest ICTV taxonomy release.
Genes encoded by viruses and plasmids are functionally annotated using geNomad’s marker database.
