Nextflow is a bioinformatics workflow manager that enables the development of portable and reproducible workflows. It supports deploying workflows on a variety of execution platforms including local, HPC schedulers, AWS Batch, Google Genomics Pipelines, and Kubernetes. Additionally, it provides support for manage your workflow dependencies through built-in support for Conda, Docker, Singularity, and Modules.
See versions of nextflow which are available:
$ module avail nextflow
Load one version into your environment and run it:
$ module load nextflow/20.10.0 $ nextflow
See the nextflow documentation for information about how to use it.
Note:: by default nextflow writes temporary data to
/tmp, which may not have adequate storage space depending on your pipeline. Please configure your workflow to use
/var/scratch instead. See the configuration link above for information about how to do that.
