ISMB Tutorial

July 9, 2016

As described at ISMB

Dr. O’Connor will begin by discussing the ICGC PCAWG project and the insights he’s gained from rapidly analyzing thousands of whole cancer genomes. Attendees will learn about how his team has used Docker as a key component to their workflow, best practices for creating shareable tools, as well as the motivation behind the creation of Dockstore (, a platform for sharing Docker­based tools described with the Common Workflow Language. Attendees will learn how to create custom Docker containers and push them to Dockstore to share with the community.
