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

GitHub twitter mastodon YouTube Slack LinkedIn Bluesky

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 Slack community chat or the discussion forum on GitHub.


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 introduce yourself and what you want to work on in nf-core on the #github-invitations Slack channel and we'll send an invite.
