Welcome to ChunLab's Orthologous Average Nucleotide Identity Tool (OAT), a similarity measurement tool for genomes.
OAT uses OrthoANI to measure the overall similarity between two genome sequences. ANI and OrthoANI are comparable algorithms: they share the same species demarcation cut-off at 95~96% and large comparison studies have demonstrated both algorithms to produce near identical reciprocal similarities. Details of the OrthoANI algorithm is given in (Lee et al. 2015). OAT employs an easy-to-follow Graphical User Interface that allow researchers to calculate OrthoANI values between genomes of interest without unfamiliar Command Line Environments. Moreover, the OAT_cmd command-line software can be integrated into preexisting bioinformatics pipelines.
(2015-10-26) GGDC calculator is updated (http://ggdc.dsmz.de/), calculating GGDC1, GGDC2, and GGDC3.
