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 200k downloads on Bioconda, and on average 6 new citations per week, Snakemake is a widely used and accepted standard for reproducible data science that has powered numerous high impact publications.
This 1-day workshop will teach how to use Snakemake for reproducible data analysis.
