One held to foretell events by omens. (Merriam-Webster)
Augur is a bioinformatics toolkit to track evolution from sequence and serological data. It provides a collection of commands which are designed to be composable into larger processing pipelines. Augur originated as part of Nextstrain, an open-source project to harness the scientific and public health potential of pathogen genome data.
