Pangolin uses variant calls to assign SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences to global lineages.


Pangolin (Phylogenetic Assignment of Named Global Outbreak LINeages) 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.
