Part 1 Welcome and about the course

This slow-paced hands-on course is designed for absolute beginners who want to start using containers and Nextflow pipelines to achieve reproducibility of data analysis.
Linux containers allow the storage of code and applications in a host-independent lightweight environment. They became a fast and popular way to share and deploy applications in different environments.
Nextflow is a powerful polyglot workflow language that coupled with Docker and Singularity containers provides a robust, scalable and reproducible way to run computational pipelines.
