Nextflow integration for the Research Object Specification

Garriga Nogales, Edgar; Di Tommaso, Paolo; Notredame, Cedric

For reproducibility criteria to be met in a scientific context an increasing number of conditions need to be fulfilled. These conditions, explicited by the FAIR principle include traceability, reusability and data/methods permanent availability (findable). The challenge is not only to keep the right elements bundled together, but also to keep track of each component individual history (including individual updates) while associating every computational analysis with a transparent source. This issue, known as provenance, is the one we have been addressing in the context of this proposal. It is increasingly critical, at a time when a growing number of computational procedures are used to assess medical risks and take therapeutic decision. Our solution involves using the Research Object (RO) specification that have allowed us to implement a method that enables the creation of a package collecting all provenance metadata of a computational experiment, so that it can be easily shared, archived and reproduced when needed
