Nextflow workshop is coming!

  • Paolo Di Tommaso
  • 26 April 2017

We are excited to announce the first Nextflow workshop that will take place at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park building (PRBB) on 14-15th September 2017.

This event is open to everybody who is interested in the problem of computational workflow reproducibility. Leading experts and users will discuss the current state of the Nextflow technology and how it can be applied to manage -omics analyses in a reproducible manner. Best practices will be introduced on how to deploy real-world large-scale genomic applications for precision medicine.

During the hackathon, organized for the second day, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to write self-contained, replicable data analysis pipelines along with Nextflow expert developers.

More details at this link. The registration form is available here (deadline 15th Jun).
