Abstract We present a new module of the micrOMEGAs package for the calculation of WIMP–nuclei elastic scattering cross sections relevant for the direct detection of dark matter through its interaction with nuclei in a large detector. With this new module, the computation of the direct detection rate is performed automatically for a generic model of new physics which contains a WIMP candidate. This model needs to be implemented within micrOMEGAs 2.2. Title of program: micrOMEGAs2.2 Catalogue Id: ADQR_v2_2 Nature of problem Calculation of the relic density and of direct and indirect detection rates of the lightest stable particle in a generic new model of particle physics.
