Workflows using Nextflow

Nextflow is a workflow framework and a programming DSL (Domain Specific Language) that eases the writing of data-intensive computational pipelines.  Nextflow is widely adopted by genomic researchers and it can also help other users who run pipeline based computational tasks.

Linux provides many simple but powerful command-line and scripting tools that, when chained together, facilitate complex data manipulations.  Nextflow extends this approach, adding the ability to define complex program interactions and a high-level parallel computational environment based on the dataflow programming model.

In this presentation, we will introduce the basic concepts and features of Nextflow.  We will also walk through several application examples.  

Materials and slides for the talk are available in our gitlab repository here:
