Bio-informatics ecosystem provider, Seven Bridges, now supports Nextflow and Workflow Description languages through the latest update of their platform. The upgrade will enable data scientists to run tools on whichever language they want on this platform with enhanced safety and compatibility.
“CWL, WDL and Nextflow offer unique characteristics that make them attractive to researchers with varied expertise and at different phases of the research lifecycle. By supporting multiple workflow languages, Seven Bridges makes it easier for researchers to realize the benefit of reproducible analysis at scale,” commented Jeff Gentry co-founder of WDL and CWL leadership member.
Researchers can now utilize the Seven Bridges platform to access vast data libraries of WDL and Nextflow processes, as well as workflows produced in-house. Seven Bridges platform will continue to support the common workflow language (CWL) and provides more than 600 optimized workflows in their platform.
Brandi Davis-Dusenbery, Chief Scientific Officer at Seven Bridges, stated “The development and adoption of standards for secure data exchange and portable, reproducible analysis is critical to realizing the promise of precision medicine, particularly when data are housed in geographically diverse regions or with varied access requirements. This expansion, when coupled with our industry leading multi-cloud capabilities, enables more researchers across the world to effectively generate insights from large biomedical datasets.”
Data scientists will now be able to obtain more meaningful and useful insights from data using the updated version of the platform. With its leading interoperable data eco-system, the new release has made the process of data analytics quicker.
