Hello all -
Curii has received an add-on grant to our existing CZI EOSS grant for working on diversity and inclusion in the CWL Project.
" Common Workflow Language (Growing a Diverse and Inclusive Workflow Ecosystem with CWL - Chan Zuckerberg Initiative) is a standard for describing biomedical analysis workflows and enabling reproducible research. The grant will support hiring a community engineer who will provide software engineering to support community members, mentoring internships via Outreachy, and updating code and documentation to make them more user friendly and accessible. *(Sarah Wait Zaranek at the Curii Corporation)"
