Integrated multi-omics at scale

An open-source, community-driven analysis and visualization platform for microbial 'omics.

Anvi'o in a nutshell

Anvi’o is a comprehensive platform that brings together many aspects of today’s cutting-edge computational strategies of data-enabled microbiology, including genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, pangenomics, metapangenomics, phylogenomics, and microbial population genetics in an integrated and easy-to-use fashion through extensive interactive visualization capabilities.

The latest stable version of anvi’o is v7.1, and you can see the release notes here.

The platform stands on more than 200,000 lines of Python and JavaScript code that follow modern software development paradigms thanks to the voluntary contributions of more than 30 developers from the academia and industry to empower microbiologists for their complex needs through an architecture that enables reproducible science and simple interfaces for data access.

As a principle, anvi’o does not track its users by any means, but based on self-reported data on Twitter, there is at least one anvi’o user in the following countries:


We welcome you to join in our growing international community, and we look forward to hearing from you. Please share your concerns, ideas, and feature requests with the anvi’o community, or ask your questions on microbial ‘omics on our group.
