The Snakemake workflow management system is a tool to create reproducible and scalable data analyses. Snakemake is highly popular, with on average more than 7 new citations per week in 2021, and almost 400k downloads. Workflows are described via a human readable, Python based language. They can be seamlessly scaled to server, cluster, grid and cloud environments without the need to modify the workflow definition. Finally, Snakemake workflows can entail a description of required software, which will be automatically deployed to any execution environment.
