Sanger Tree of Life

The Tree of Life Programme uses DNA sequencing and cellular technologies to investigate the diversity and origins of life on Earth. Our research covers all eukaryotic organisms, which means all complex life with a nucleus in their cells – that is every animal, plant, fungi and protist on the planet.

We use Nextflow and are building our own pipelines following the nf-core methodology. All our pipelines are on GitHub,, and are then listed and documented at which is automatically updated every time a new version is released. Our standard procedure is to deposit the releases on Zenodo ( where they acquire a DOI. In parallel, we manually upload certain versions here, on WorkflowHub.
