The gencore module system is designed to be composable, testable, with the functionality to share with any researcher anywhere in the world.
Each module is designed to a be a 100% self contained analysis module. For any given analysis (variant detection, rnaseq, chipseq, etc) each piece of software with all dependencies and correct versioning is included.
Nature – Reality Check on Reproducible Research
Is there a reproducibility crisis in science? Yes, according to the readers of
Two-thirds of researchers who responded to a survey by this journal
said that current levels of reproducibility are a major problem.
Gencore modules are thoroughly tested and uploaded to the cloud. Anyone, anywhere can use these modules.
The short answer is reproducible research.
Additionally, if you take a look at just the variant_detection module, it has ~25 modules, and following the dependency tree leads to over ~250 individual software packages. Different softwares can and do have conflicting versions, differing compilations, etc. Each gencore module has been tested against these possibilities.
