Join Slack nf-core on GitHub @nf_core on twitter YouTube Google Groups email list


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. You can join the nf-core slack here.

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 anyone can join: drop us a note here or anywhere and we'll send you an invite.


The @nf_core is a low-volume account that sends automated tweets whenever a new pipeline release is tagged. Relevant news and events are occasionally also tweeted. See https://twitter.com/nf_core


The nf-core YouTube account is used for tutorial videos and has a playlist to collect recordings of presentations about nf-core from across the web. See https://www.youtube.com/c/nf-core

Google Groups

If Slack isn't your thing and you prefer traditional email lists, head over to https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/nf-core and send us a message!
