PEARC20 has ended
Welcome to PEARC20!
PEARC20’s theme is “Catch the Wave.” This year’s theme embodies the spirit of the community’s drive to stay on pace and in front of all the new waves in technology, analytics, and a globally connected and diverse workforce. We look forward to this year’s PEARC20 virtual meeting, where we can share scientific discovery and craft the future infrastructure.

The conference will be held in Pacific Time (PT) and the times listed below are in Pacific Time.

The connection information for all PEARC20 workshops, tutorials, plenaries, track presentations, BOFs, Posters, Visualization Showcase, and other affiliated events, are in the PEARC20 virtual conference platform, Brella. If you have issues joining Brella, please email pearcinfo@googlegroups.com.

MetaFlow|mics: Scalable and Reproducible Nextflow Pipelines for the Analysis of Microbiome Marker Data

Computational scalability has become an important requirement for processing the massive amounts of data generated in contemporary sequencing-based experiments. The availability of large computational resources through academic, regional or national cyber-infrastructure efforts, as well as through inexpensive cloud offerings, has shifted the bottleneck, which now lies in the extensive expertise necessary to create reproducible and scalable bioinformatics pipelines and deploy them to such diverse infrastructures. We present here MetaFlow|mics, a comprehensive pipeline for the analysis of microbiome marker data using reproducibility, best practices and state-of-the-art cyberinfrastructure standards. MetaFlow|mics provides seamless scalability and extensibility, allowing users to build and test their pipelines on a laptop with small datasets and to subsequently run them on large datasets on an HPC or on the Cloud with a change to a single line of code. Our framework is built on top of the Nextflow workflow management system and provides an interoperable architecture that leverages self-contained Docker and Singularity instances with all the dependencies and requirements needed to quickly deploy and use the pipeline.
