Phylogenetic Assignment of Named Global Outbreak Lineages
Pangolin was developed to implement the dynamic nomenclature of SARS-CoV-2 lineages, known as the Pango nomenclature. It allows a user to assign a SARS-CoV-2 genome sequence the most likely lineage (Pango lineage) to SARS-CoV-2 query sequences.
Pangolin assigns lineages to query sequences as described in Rambaut et al 2020.
Pangolin is available as a command line tool and a web application. The web application was developed by the Centre for Genomic Pathogen Surveillance. The command line tool is open source software available under the GNU General Public License v3.0.
