A general overview of the Common Workflow Language and its use in bioinformatics
The Common Workflow Language (CWL) is a specification for describing analysis workflows and tools in a way that makes them portable and scalable across a variety of software and hardware environments, from workstations to cluster, cloud, and high performance computing environments. CWL is designed to meet the needs of data-intensive science, such as Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging, Astronomy, Physics, and Chemistry. CWL is developed by an informal, multi-vendor working group consisting of organisations and individuals aiming to enable scientists to share data analysis workflows.
Michael R. Crusoe is a Community Engineer and co-founder of the CWL Project and will present a seminar: A general overview of the Common Workflow Language and its use in bioinformatics.
When: 12:00-1:00pm Thu 11 May 2017 (no registration required)
Where: FW Jones Theatre, Level 3, Medical Building, University of Melbourne
Michael’s activities in Melbourne have been organised by Melbourne Bioinformatics, with sponsorship from the Computational Biology Research Initiative at the University of Melbourne.
This one-hour talk and a subsequent two-hour workshop Michael’s gave in Melbourne were recorded and are now accessible via our Video archive.
