nf-core/methylseq is a bioinformatics best-practice analysis pipeline used for Methylation (BS-Seq) data analysis.
The pipeline uses Nextflow, a bioinformatics workflow tool. It pre-processes raw data from FastQ inputs, aligns the reads and performs extensive quality-control on the results.
Choice of workflows
There are two separate workflows contained in this repository - one using Bismark and one using bwa-meth / MethylDackel. The Bismark pipeline is being actively developed and maintained, the bwa-meth workflow is not (currently). The Nextflow manifest specifies the Bismark pipeline as the default workflow, so the bwa-meth script will be ignored unless explicitly run.
The nf-core/methylseq pipeline comes with documentation about the pipeline, found in the
