Bioinformatics Pipeline Development with Nextflow
How to manage your own data analysis pipelines using workflow management systems
When? October 4-7, 2022
Where? Leipzig, Germany
Streamline your research through the development of reproducible analysis pipelines
In a nutshell
- Learn the fundamental best-practices of bioinformatic pipeline development
- Understand how workflow management systems can accelerate your research
- Use state-of-the-art, open source software to make complex analyses routine
- Perform your own custom analysis pipelines using Nextflow
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce the concepts of bioinformatic pipeline development through the context of the open source Workflow Management System (WMS) Nextflow. The participants will be trained in the scripting, configuration and execution of example analysis pipelines based on current industry best-practices, and learn how to share them with other users. Finally, the participants will apply everything they have learned by implementing their own analysis pipelines from the ground up.
By the end of the workshop all attendees will be enabled to build their own scalable, reproducible bioinformatic pipelines which can be run locally, on high-performance computing clusters or even in the cloud. The course layout has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of computational biology and allows scientists with little or no background in software development to get a first hands-on experience in this new and fast-evolving area of expertise.
