The Camadro Lab recently contributed to the publication of a new article in Briefing in Bioinformatics :
Computational reproducibility is a simple premise in theory, but is difficult to achieve in practice. Building upon past efforts and proposals to maximize reproducibility and rigor in bioinformatics, we present a framework called the five pillars of reproducible computational research. These include (1) literate programming, (2) code version control and sharing, (3) compute environment control, (4) persistent data sharing and (5) documentation. These practices will ensure that computational research work can be reproduced quickly and easily, long into the future. This guide is designed for bioinformatics data analysts and bioinformaticians in training, but should be relevant to other domains of study.
