This is the Nextstrain build for tuberculosis, visible at

The build encompasses preparing data for analysis, doing quality control, performing analyses, and saving the results in a format suitable for visualization (with auspice). This involves running components of Nextstrain such as augur and auspice.

All tuberculosis-specific steps and functionality for the Nextstrain pipeline should be housed in this repository.


There is a tutorial on how to run this build.


If you're unfamiliar with Nextstrain builds, you may want to follow our quickstart guide first and then come back here.

The easiest way to run this pathogen build is using the Nextstrain command-line tool:

nextstrain build .

See the nextstrain-cli README for how to install the nextstrain command.

Alternatively, you should be able to run the build using snakemake within an suitably-configured local environment.
Details of setting that up are not yet well-documented, but will be in the future.

Build output goes into the directories results/ and auspice/.

Once you've run the build, you can view the results in auspice:

nextstrain view auspice/


Configuration takes place entirely with the Snakefile. This can be read top-to-bottom, each rule specifies its file inputs and output and also its parameters. There is little redirection and each rule should be able to be reasoned with on its own.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
