the bioinformatics chat

A podcast about computational biology, bioinformatics, and next generation sequencing.


episode 47: Reproducible pipelines and NGLess with Luis Pedro Coelho

NGLess is a programming language specifically targeted at next generation sequencing (NGS) data processing. In this episode we chat with its main developer, Luis Pedro Coelho, about the benefits of domain-specific languages, pros and cons of Haskell in bioinformatics, reproducibility, and of course NGLess itself.
