IntroductionΒΆ

An introduction to everything required to properly use Dockstore as a contributor. Learn about how Docker and CWL/WDL/Nextflow are changing how scientists use and create tools via a series of tutorials which goes through the whole process of:

  • Creating a tool with Docker
  • Describing the tool with a descriptor file (CWL/WDL/Nextflow)
  • Creating a Dockstore account
  • Registering the tool on Dockstore

The tool we will be using throughout this tutorial is BAMStats. It is a tool for summarising Next Generation Sequencing alignments. It accepts a BAM file as input and produces a ZIP file containing an HTML report on the alignment.
