The Quantitative Biology Center provides a one-stop-shop for access to high-throughput technologies in the life sciences and the required bioinformatics analysis. As a bioinformatics core facility, we provide advanced data analysis techniques.
The Wellcome Sanger Institute is one of the premier centres of genomic discovery and understanding in the world. It leads ambitious collaborations across the globe to provide the foundations for further research and transformative healthcare innovations.
The Beatson Institute is one of Cancer Research UK’s core-funded institutes. They have built an excellent reputation for basic cancer research, including world-class metabolism studies and renowned in vivo modelling of tumour growth and metastasis.
The International Agency for Research on Cancer is the specialized cancer agency of the World Health Organization. The objective of the IARC is to promote international collaboration in cancer research.
The BioFrontiers Institute at the University of Colorado (CU) is an interdisciplinary hub for bioscience research and education with a focus on improving human health.
The Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology, an Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, is dedicated to basic research in diverse aspects of plant molecular biology.
IISER Mohali is an autonomous academic and research institution at Mohali, Punjab, India.
The Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (MPI-SHH) in Jena was founded in 2014 to target fundamental questions of human history and evolution since the Paleolithic.
Founded in 1831, New York University is now one of the largest private universities in the United States. Of the more than 3,000 colleges and universities in America, New York University is one of only 60 member institutions of the distinguished Association of American Universities.
The Institut Curie is a private nonprofit organization created in 1909 which combines a leading European cancer research center with a hospital group. The Institut Curie Bioinformatics platform is composed of biostatisticians and software engineers who offer a multidisciplinary expertise to support the biotechnological platforms, the research units and the hospital in their daily activities.
CZ Biohub is an independent, non-profit medical research organization working in collaboration with UC San Francisco, Stanford University and UC Berkeley. Our vision is to develop and apply technologies that will enable doctors to cure, prevent or manage all diseases during our children’s lifetime.
We are collating statements and general comments from those who have either contributed to nf-core, or have chosen to routinely deploy nf-core pipelines for their data analysis. Feel free to add your own experiences, and please let us know if we have missed anything!
The German Funding Body (DFG) has approved funding to establish 4 national high-throughput sequencing centers in Germany. The project will rely on nf-core pipelines for analyzing large-scale genomics data. Contributors from the Kiel and Tübingen sites are already actively contributing to nf-core, and the other sequencing centers in Cologne/Bonn (West German Genome Center) and the Dresden Center have committed to joining and contributing their expertise.
The Swedish National Genomics Infrastructure (NGI) was a founding member of nf-core and is committed to developing analysis methodologies within the nf-core community. The NGI provides next-generatation sequencing methodologies for all Swedish researchers, from library prep to sequencing to best-practice bioinformatics analysis. We have seen fantastic uptake and feedback from pipelines within the framework and intend to be a longstanding member of the community.
The Bioinformatics & Biostatistics group at The Francis Crick Institute has contributed numerous pipelines to the nf-core framework, and we have a vested interest in its ongoing development. Our aim is to automate the tedious process of going from raw data to processed results in a portable, reproducible and scalable manner, which enables our scientists to focus on the biological interpretation of their experiments. More importantly, nf-core pipelines are implemented to benefit the entire bioinformatics community, and in turn their evolution is driven by the very same community through their use, contributions and extensive feedback. This is nothing short of amazing!
Just tested https://t.co/wERtIS7xPp with bacterial WGS data. It was very easy to work with. I am very impressed by nf-core! Great community and very important project to promote #reproducibility in #bioinformatics analyses. @alex_peltzer @aka_hpatel— Rodrigo O. Polo (@ropolo) August 6, 2019
Literally everyone should know about that! @nextflowio Harshil Patel from Francis Crick Institute pitches good practice, hydrating and having these cool stickers on his laptop #bioinfocore #ISMBECCB https://t.co/tkIgAWfeYZ pic.twitter.com/pOHNcFh3Yp— Daniel Stekhoven (@DanStekhoven) July 22, 2019
Many useful and well-documented bioinformatics pipelines by the @nf_core team, from RNA-seq, methylation, to this differential ATAC-seq. More in development, https://t.co/SvAJjIJqHD https://t.co/TCsBWlJyeC— Mikhail Dozmorov (@mikhaildozmorov) April 11, 2019
My definition of joy:— Paolo Di Tommaso (@PaoloDiTommaso) December 14, 2018
1) Pick a random @nf_core pipeline
2) Launch `nextflow run <name> -profile docker,test`
3) Feel proud of that.
