Workshop: Towards reproducible computational biology

Schmeier Research Group // Massey University


Sebastian gave a seminar followed by a hands-on session with the title “Towards reproducible computational biology” at the ResBaz conference in Auckland. He discussed life science package managers, workflow management system, as well as containerization and how this can be used to produce reproducible bioinformatics data analysis workflows. The workshop tutorial material is available at The slides of the seminar are available at figshare (
