Ease-of-use meets industry-leading accuracy in the new CosmosID plugin for CLC Genomics and Biomedical Genomics Workbench. Detect pathogens and antimicrobial resistance genes, or track microbial community changes.
CosmosID identifies bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites and antibiotic resistance factors in shotgun metagenomic data and is able to discriminate pathogens from their ‘near neighbors’ using statistical and computational methods, with no prior assumptions as to what is present in the sample.
Analyze 12 of your own samples, free of charge.

CosmosID uses raw, unassembled reads as input and matches the sequence against GenBook®, a curated reference database of known pathogens and microbes including bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, and antibiotic resistance and virulence factors. GenBook® is derived from private and public databases of assembled genomes, and constitutes hundreds of millions of marker sequences representing both coding and non-coding sequences that are shared or uniquely identified across taxonomic or phylogenetic levels.
