This workshop will use Nextflow as a workflow engine. It provides a simple and fluent DSL and is portable by using containers for workflow execution. Furthermore it allows the use of a lot of traditional and modern execution engines; one of which is AWS Batch which we will use today.
Installing Nextflow using the online installer.
The snippet creates the Nextflow launcher in the current directory. So we just move the command to
/usr/local/bin to have it ready to be executed anywhere.
curl -s https://get.nextflow.io | bash sudo mv nextflow /usr/local/bin/
