## Introduction
# Introduction

Auspice is an open-source interactive web app for visualizing phylogenomic data.
It is the app that powers all the visualization on [nextstrain.org](https://nextstrain.org), which aims to provide a continually-updated view of publicly available pathogen genome data.
Auspice was designed to aid epidemiological understanding and improve outbreak response, but is able to visualize a diverse range of datasets.
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 with powerful analytics and visualizations showing pathogen evolution and epidemic spread.
Our goal is to aid epidemiological understanding and improve outbreak response.

Resulting data and inferences are available live at the website [nextstrain.org](https://nextstrain.org).
Documentation is available at [nextstrain.org/docs](https://nextstrain.org/docs).

Auspice is an open-source interactive web app for visualizing phylogenomic data.
