Introduction to CWL and Docker: automating workflows in Life Sciences

 

Update: 20 March 2020

Unfortunately, given the current situation,  the "Introduction to CWL and Docker: automating workflows in Life Sciences" workshop will have to be postponed. 

We will be holding the workshop in the (hopefully) near future, and we will investigate multiple options for the workshop delivery, beyond having a physical, face-2-face event (including fully virtual as well as hybrid forms). In any case, we will be announcing this as soon as possible.

Regarding people who have already registered, we will maintain the registrations (the form is now temporarily closed), so there is no additional action from your end.

Kind regards, and be safe everyone!

Reproducible research is an important part of good scientific practice; therefore, establishing robust computational analysis workflows can greatly facilitate this. There has been a strong emphasis on establishing graphic workflow management systems, such as Galaxy and Knime. However, the landscape and complexity of Linux command line tools for workflow management is vast and complicated. This 2-day workshop covers all the steps from defining containers using Docker, to constructing module-based workflows using the Common Workflow Language (CWL).
