Brendel Group - SingularityHub

What does our "SingularityHub" page offer? We are a computational genomics group and support containers for software in this realm. Typically, the containers bundle multiple packages of diverse programs that are frequently used in combination in a project. In our own work, we seek to bundle everything that should be referenced in the methods description of our scientific papers, thus ensuring complete technical reproducibility of the computational work. For usage instructions and a complete list of all available containers, please see our bgSingularityHub github repository and CATALOG page, respectively.
