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!

German National Sequencing Initiative

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.

Swedish National Genomics Infrastructure

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 Francis Crick Institute

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!
