The GATK workshop is a 4-day course formula where talks and hands-on exercises are interleaved to provide a well-balanced learning experience for participants. It covers basic genomics, all currently supported Best Practices pipelines as well as pipelining with WDL/Cromwell/FireCloud. This includes the logic of the major pipelines, file formats and fata transformations involved, and hands-on operation of the tools using goal-oriented exercises.
