Yesterday I have found an amazing audio comment on Nature's Arts and Books blog that was discussing a possible influence of music on the development of modern science. Among the many connections we may find between science and music, the one I am going to propose today turns out quite unexpected. I understand that pipeline development is … Continue reading Tune up your pipeline with Luigi, the Python module to manage workflow used in Spotify.
I return on pipeline creation tools because I was warned about Nextflow project, a DSL for parallel and scalable computational pipeline creation. As already discussed in a recent post, we can sort pipeline solutions according to how they deal with your code. Some of them are able to connect functions, some of them require dedicated modules, and others … Continue reading Nextflow: a DSL for parallel and scalable computational pipelines.
By this post, I will start exploring the possible contributions Google may provide to bioinformatics, a topic I am considering to deepen for a while. The rise of bigdata in biology is causing Big G to show a growing interest in this field, and very soon, the Mountain View giant may grow its investments in Life Sciences. … Continue reading MapReduce: using the Google bigdata algorithm in bioinformatics
