Pre-processing and analysis of high-throughput data requires more and more mutually dependent steps and on the other hand ever-increasing computational power that exceeds the capacities of desktop computers. As the functionality of simple script pipelines is limited, the use of a workflow management system is recommended. Here, we present Watchdog, a lightweight workflow management system for the automated analysis of experimental high-throughput data on distributed computer systems with customizable error detection.

Key features:
  • straightforward processing of replicate data
  • support of different execution hosts
  • no restriction to certain programming languages
  • minimal overhead for making existing tools compatible with Watchdog
  • customizable error detection
