Data analyses usually entail the application of many command line tools or scripts to transform, filter, aggregate or plot data and results. With ever increasing amounts of data being collected in science, reproducible and scalable automatic workflow management becomes increasingly important.
The Snakemake workflow management system is a tool to create reproducible and scalable data analyses. Workflows are described via a human readable, Python based language. They can be seamlessly scaled to server, cluster, grid and cloud environments, without the need to modify the workflow definition. Finally, Snakemake workflows can entail a description of required software, which will be automatically deployed to any execution environment.
With over 100k downloads on Bioconda, Snakemake is a widely used and accepted standard for reproducible data science that has powered numerous high impact publications.
This 2-day workshop with, at the first day, teach how to use Snakemake for reproducible data analysis.
On the second day, we will further discuss advanced topics and everybody is welcome to apply the obtained knowledge for his or her own analysis project while getting help from the organizers.
The training room is located on the first floor and there is currently no wheelchair or level access available to this level.
