We use a few different tools to organise the nf-core community - you are welcome to join us at any or all!

All nf-core community members are expected to adhere to the nf-core code of conduct

If your question is about Nextflow and not directly related to nf-core, please use the main Nextflow Gitter chat.


If you would like help with running nf-core pipelines, Slack is the best place to start.

Slack is a real-time messaging tool, with discussion split into channels and groups. We use it to provide help to people running nf-core pipelines, as well as discussing development ideas.

Once you have registered, you can access the nf-core slack at https://nfcore.slack.com/ (NB: No hyphen!)

GitHub organisation

If you encounter a bug or have a suggestion, please create an issue on the repository for that pipeline.

We use GitHub to manage all of the code written for nf-core. It's a fantastic platform and provides a huge number of tools. We have a GitHub organisation called nf-core which we use to give access to collaborators for editing and reviewing code.

To join the GitHub organisation, please drop us a note here or on the #github-invitations Slack channel and we'll send an invite.
