GAMBIT Documentation

GAMBIT (Genomic Approximation Method for Bacterial Identification and Tracking) is a tool for rapid taxonomic identification of microbial pathogens. It uses an efficient genomic distance metric along with a curated database of approximately 50,000 reference genomes (derived from NCBI RefSeq) to identify genome assemblies from across the Bacterial kingdom in seconds.

If you have any questions or feedback about the project or its documentation please contact me at, I would love to hear them.
