Snakemake

Snakemake was created by and for the bioinformatics community. However, it has a general purpose design and can be used for for any data analysis pipeline. Most other workflow engines are control-flow oriented. Snakemake instead builds a file dependence graph and uses file modifications to drive the execution, like the original “make” tool.
