How to force Snakemake to rerun a rule and visualize a pipeline (CC257)
In this Code Club, Pat shares how to visualize the structure of a Snakemake pipeline and force Snakemake to rerun a rule. In this application we are rerunning a rule because we need to pull fresh data from the NOAA website. After getting fresh data, Pat refactors the R code that he wrote in the last episode for calculating the z-score of the amount of monthly precipitation relative to the same month over the past century. He does this using
select. The overall goal of this project is to highlight reproducible research practices using a number of tools. The specific output from this project will be a map-based visual that shows the level of drought across the globe.
