LocationVirtual, via Zoom

The Snakemake workflow management system is a tool to create reproducible, scalable, transparent, and adaptable 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 300k downloads on Bioconda, and on average over 6 new citations per week (>1000 in total), Snakemake is a widely used and accepted standard for reproducible data science that has powered numerous high impact publications.
