Introduction

nf-core has a variety of recognisable images and other graphic designs for the community project. To help facilitate the identification of nf-core pipelines and related material, we provide here a variety of files that can be used for all nf-core-related content, such as pipeline logos, presentations, or workflow diagrams.

All files are released under various forms of 'open' licenses, meaning you can re-use and re-model as you see fit.

All information for the nf-core logo can be seen at the nf-core/logos GitHub repository and are released under the MIT licence.

The nf-core create command will generate a logo for your pipeline automatically. However, you can also do this yourself by visiting https://nf-co.re/logo/pipelinename, where pipelinename can be anything.

Please note that nf-core is a separate entity from Nextflow. You can find information about the Nextflow trademark with associated logo files at https://github.com/nextflow-io/trademark

Font & Colours

The font used in nf-core designs is Maven Pro Bold (700), available at Google Fonts, under the Open Font License.

The nf-core green colour is as follows:

Presentation Templates

nf-core regularly host community events, such as hackathons, and encourage training (e.g. nf-core tutorials) the wider bioinformatics community in creating nextflow and nf-core pipelines.

Workflow Schematics

It is often useful to have simplified diagrams that outline the main functionality and steps of a pipeline. This helps new users get an overview of a workflow when visiting a pipeline webpage or repository for the first time.

Examples

See below for some examples of nf-core workflow schematics that can be re-used and modified for your own pipeline.
