Dear all, we will run a 2-day Workshop on SNAKEMAKE with Dr. Johannes Köster next February (19-20).
Snakemake is a workflow management system, consisting of a text-based workflow specification language and a scalable execution environment, that allows the parallelized execution of workflows on workstations, compute servers and clusters without modification of the workflow definition. Thereby, its scheduling algorithm allows Snakemake to maximize workflow execution speed while not exceeding given constraints like the number of available processor cores, cluster nodes or auxilliary hardware like graphics cards.
Since its publication, Snakemake has been widely adopted and was used to build analysis workflows for a variety of high impact publications. With about 5000 homepage visits per month, it has a large and stable user community.
This course will introduce the Snakemake workflow definition language and describe how to use the execution environment to scale workflows to compute servers and clusters while adapting to hardware specific constraints. Further, it will be shown how Snakemake helps to create reproducible analyses that can be adapted to new data with little effort.
