Cumulus WDL workflows and Dockerfiles

Release License Docs

All of our docker images are publicly available on Docker Hub and Quay. Our workflows use Docker Hub as the default Docker registry. Users can use Quay as the Docker registry by entering for the workflow input “docker_registry”, or enter a custom registry URL of their own choice.

Version 1.1.0 December 28, 2020

  • On cumulus workflow:
    • Add CITE-Seq data analysis back. (See section Run CITE-Seq analysis for details)
    • Add doublet detection. (See infer_doublets, expected_doublet_rate, and doublet_cluster_attribute input fields)
    • For tSNE visualization, only support FIt-SNE algorithm. (see run_tsne and plot_tsne input fields)
    • Improve efficiency on log-normalization and DE tests.
    • Support multiple marker JSON files used in cell type annotation. (see organism input field)
    • More preset gene sets provided in gene score calculation. (see calc_signature_scores input field)
  • Add star_solo workflow (see STARsolo section for details):
    • Use STARsolo to generate count matrices from FASTQ files.
    • Support chemistry protocols such as 10X-V3, 10X-V2, DropSeq, and SeqWell.
  • Update the example of analyzing hashing and CITE-Seq data (see Example section) with the new workflows.
  • Bug fix.

Version 1.0.0 September 23, 2020

  • Add demultiplexing workflow for cell-hashing/nucleus-hashing/genetic-pooling analysis.
  • Add support on CellRanger version 4.0.0.
  • Update cumulus workflow with Pegasus version 1.0.0:
    • Use zarr file format to handle data, which has a better I/O performance in general.
    • Support focus analysis on Unimodal data, and appending other Unimodal data to it. (focus and append inputs in cluster step).
    • Quality-Control: Change percent_mito default from 10.0 to 20.0; by default remove bounds on UMIs (min_umis and max_umis inputs in cluster step).
    • Quality-Control: Automatically figure out name prefix of mitochondrial genes for GRCh38 and mm10 genome reference data.
    • Support signature / gene module score calculation. (calc_signature_scores input in cluster step)
    • Add Scanorama method to batch correction. (correction_method input in cluster step).
    • Calculate UMAP embedding by default, instead of FIt-SNE.
    • Differential Expression (DE) analysis: remove inputs mwu and auc as they are calculated by default. And cell-type annotation uses MWU test result by default.
  • Remove cumulus_subcluster workflow.

Version 0.15.0 May 6, 2020

Version 0.14.0 February 28, 2020

  • Added support for gene-count matrices generation using alternative tools (STARsolo, Optimus, Salmon alevin, Kallisto BUStools).
