Course Description: 
Just like other research workflows, computer workflows should be reproducible. Being able to do the same analysis twice is critical for scholarship, and diverse tools and techniques exist to help you get organized, document your work, and even automate tedious steps. These also help you reduce errors and adapt your work to explore new questions. We survey and demonstrate a few tools you can use to organize and orchestrate work at the command-line : documentation, git, Makefiles, Nextflow, and Singularity containers. Our aim is to inspire researchers to build flexible and reproducible workflows that facilitate scholarship and help adapt to new problems. Familiarity with how to run commands in a Linux/Unix/OSX terminal will be extremely helpful."
