We aim to provide the research community with a range of options for running our Best Practices workflows exactly the same way we do it in-house at the Broad Institute. To that end, we make all our workflow scripts available publicly in Github under a dedicated organization called gatk-workflows, and we provide Docker containers for all versions of GATK (since 2018) in DockerHub. See the Best Practices to browse the pipelines by use case.
GATK's preferred pipelining solution: WDL + Cromwell
Our workflows are written in WDL, a user-friendly scripting language maintained by the OpenWDL community. Cromwell is an open-source workflow execution engine that supports WDL as well as CWL, the Common Workflow Language, and can be run on a variety of different platforms, both local and cloud-based. We take advantage of Cromwell's flexibility in our own work: we do some of our initial development work on the Broad's UGER cluster, then we run at scale on Google Cloud. This allows us to run exactly the same scripts regardless of the compute environment.
Hi, I'm implementing the cromwell on AWS, but I'm with difficulties. Who can I talk to helpme?
Hello Vandeclecio - We have run this ourselves and were able to get this done successfully. Will be happy to support. Please feel free to ping me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
