BioBB Building Blocks

The BioExcel Building Blocks (biobb) software library is a collection of Python wrappers on top of popular biomolecular simulation tools. This library offers a layer of interoperability between the wrapped tools, which make them compatible and prepared to be directly interconnected to build complex biomolecular workflows. The building blocks can be used in many different workflow systems, including Galaxy, CWL, Jupyter Notebook and PyCOMPSs – notably their use will be equivalent across the workflow systems.

All the building blocks share a unique syntax, requiring input files, output files and input parameters (properties), irrespective of the biomolecular simulation program wrapped. The available building blocks are divided in categories (biobb modules) depending on their functionalities and tools wrapped.

Here we share workflows that demonstrate usage of the BioBB building blocks for use cases with biomolecular simulation. For further details, see:
