Innovation through Collaboration: Developing bioinformatic pipelines and sharing with nf-core

ZS Discovery, part of ZS Associates’ R&D practice area, partners with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to tackle challenging scientific and technological aspects of the Research & Development lifecycle. In the era of multiomic datasets and big data, building and deploying automated, robust workflows is critically important for increasing reproducibility and decreasing the time for achieving actionable results. Here, we will present a summary of our experience developing customized pipelines, modules and infrastructure, and how we contributed learnings from our work towards the development of open-source pipelines hosted on nf-core. Our experiences and learnings can be used as the basis of a framework for developing similar workflows, building on insights gained to avoid pitfalls and deliver rapid scientific impact.
