PMID: 29720997
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2018.00130

[…] identified using the maker recommended method (). to ensure comparability of results between assemblies and reproducibility of results more generally, the method was formalized as a reproducible nextflow pipeline (). the pipeline is available at, long terminal repeat (ltr) elements were detected using two parallel runs of the ltr harvest () […]

PMID: 29601575
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0006368

[…] raw and tpm (transcripts per million) read counts for annotated genes, respectively. deseq2 [] was used to identify differentially expressed genes. the complete rna-seq pipeline was implemented with nextflow [] and is publicly available through github (, we examined natural variation in c. elegans responses to four benzimidazoles (albendazole, […]

[…] being hosted on a different host environment. once encapsulated this way, analysis pipelines were shown to become entirely repeatable across platforms., several workflow management systems, such as nextflow, toll and galaxy, have recently been reported as having the capacity to use and deploy containers. these tools all share the same philosophy: they make it relatively easy to define […]

[…] have emerged, allowing the user to combine analytical tools and build pipelines using graphical interfaces. in addition, workflow management systems (such as taverna [], galaxy [], snakemake [], nextflow []) also ensure the traceability and reproducibility of the analytical process. the efficient use of a workflow management system remains limited to trained bioinformaticians., docker […]

DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15945

[…] to convert mouse gene symbols to human gene symbols. we used deseq2 to perform all differential expression analyses (v1.12.3), and utilized nextflow ( to implement our computational pipelines., cas9-induced mutations were detected using the t7 endonuclease i (neb). briefly, an ∼500 bp region […]
