About Nextflow


Nextflow is free open source software distributed under the Apache 2.0 licence developed by Seqera Labs. The software is used by scientists and engineers to write, deploy and share data-intensive, highly scalable, workflows on any infrastructure.

The project was started in the Notredame Lab at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG).
