@pditommaso could you double-check if my paragraph here is sane? (It's for a draft paper "Advances in technology for NGS")
Nextflow [https://doi.org/10.1038/nbt.3820] is a Python-like language for data-driven computational bioinformatics pipelines, with a strong focus on reproducibility and scalability. Nextflow uses Docker [https://www.docker.com/] for containerizing and deploying the third-party tools the workflow relies on. A Nextflow is declared by defining processes, which consume and produce messages on asynchronous channels. Channels are then wired together to form a workflow, which can be executed efficiently on a multitude of HPC and cloud platforms, including SGE, LSF, SLURM, Apache Ignite and Kubernetes.
