Scientific results are shared as manuscripts which researchers read and interpret in their own work. Based in the field of genomics, this talk will show how genome assembly software can be shared with Docker containers using a common API. Containerising scientific software leads to fungible scientific methods which can be objectively compared and easily interchanged. This leads to “standardised parts” for bioinformatics software and allows scientists to focus more on their research.
