  • Session 3 :earth_asia: :earth_americas: (APAC-Americas) Thursday, March 2nd, 19:00 - 23:00 US EST

Challenges of moving bioinformatics between computational environments, promoting bioinformatics workflow reuse, and reducing the time to reuse motivated CWL design. CWL was and is a principal component of how we orchestrate 1500 years of computation and 80,000 user-created bioinformatics workflows on the Cancer Genomics Cloud, demonstrating CWLā€™s use as a cloud-based scheduling framework. In this talk, we will select from industry, government, and academic use cases to identify the critical aspect of CWL implementation that empower user success. We also identify pain points we need to get right as a community to facilitate ease of use. Lastly, we will present emerging use cases that might drive a new generation of CWL-driven tools, including automating BioCompute object creation, managing workflow collections, facilitating continuous integration, facilitating bioinformatics training resource development, and automating workflow updates.
