Many thanks to everyone who used and supported Cluster Flow over the years.

Cluster Flow is designed to be quick and easy to install, with flexible configuration and simple customization.

It's easy enough to set up and use for non-bioinformaticians (given a basic knowledge of the command line), and it's simplicity makes it great for low to medium throughput analyses.

Installation walkthroughs and a large module toolset mean you get up and running quickly.
Comes packaged with support for 24 different bioinformatics tools (RNA, ChIP, Bisulfite and more).
Pipelines are fast to assemble, making it trivial to change on the fly.
Commands, software versions, everything is logged for reproducability.
