Communicating scientific results while also allowing interrogation of the underlying data is an integral part of the scientific process. Current scientific publishing practices hinder both the rapid dissemination of epidemiologically relevant results and the ability to easily interact with the data which was used to draw the inferences. Initially developed as part of the nextstrain project, it is a more general tool for building different websites to support these aims.
Augur is a seperate toolkit for phylodynamic analysis with a focus on pathgen and outbreak tracking. It's designed to work seamlessly with auspice. See the nextstrain documentation to find out more.
We're actively developing auspice to be more versatile and able to power many different websites. As such, the current API's are in flux while we develop this functionality. If you are interested in helping us develop these ideas and would like to use auspice to build your website then please contact us via email or twitter.
