From RAW to Skyline: an automated DIA data analysis workflow written in Nextflow that emphasizes ease of use, data reproducibility, and open science.

An automated computational workflow can solve many problems in data analysis. It dramatically simplifies installing and running the constituent steps, manages versions, reduces user errors, provides data provenance, and is essential for data reproducibility. Read More
Here we present a standardized DIA workflow written in Nextflow that begins by converting vendor RAW files, searches the data with either EncyclopeDIA or DIA-NN, performs optional imputation on missing values, creates a Skyline document, runs user-defined and QC reports, and optionally uploads to PanoramaWeb. The workflow is simple to run and orchestrates the running of all steps, which may be run on your local machine, a computer cluster, or AWS Batch. The workflow is strictly version controlled, ensuring anyone may run precisely the same workflow and reproduce your results. All steps are containerized using Docker, so there is no need to install any analysis software or manage versions. The workflow is open source and freely available on GitHub.
