Join us for our weekly series of short talks: “nf-core/bytesize”.

Just 15 minutes + questions, we will be focussing on topics about using and developing nf-core pipelines. These will be recorded and made available at It is our hope that these talks / videos will build an archive of training material that can complement our documentation. Got an idea for a talk? Let us know on the #bytesize Slack channel!

Bytesize: Converting pytest modules to nf-test

The last hackathon was under the unoffical theme of “adopting nf-test”. Adam (@adamrtalbot) and Sateesh (@sateeshperi) are going to show in this bytesize how to convert a pytest module to nf-test. Although this may be soon a feature of future nf-core/tools, you will get a look into the steps required to do so on your own!

The PR with the changes done during this bytesize can be found here.
