    DESCRIPTION

    Research analysis workflows have become increasingly complex over the years. As a result, the management of such workflows has become a daunting task, especially for those lacking advanced computing skills or working on distributed systems.

    Is there a better way? Fortunately, yes.

    This presentation will outline issues researchers may encounter when manually managing workflows and how they can be overcome using pipeline automation tools. Discussion will also focus on which tools are appropriate for different situations and for users of varying computational skill.

    Speaker:

    • Jamie Rosner, Life Science Analyst | Advanced Research Computing, University of British Columbia

    Who Should Attend:

    • Anyone who wants to learn about automating analysis workflows. The general concepts and most of the tools we’ll cover are general enough that they can apply to any type of analysis. We will present options that apply to those proficient in programming as well as those who are not.
