Today, Amazon Omics announces support for Common Workflow Language (CWL) version 1.0-1.2. This new capability extends support for multiple workflow languages (WDL, Nextflow, and CWL) in Amazon Omics, allowing customers to use the workflow language of their choice. Customers can now easily bring their CWL workflows along with their software tools and Amazon Omics will provision and manage all the underlying infrastructure for their workflow runs.

Amazon Omics is a fully managed service that helps healthcare and life science organizations build at-scale to store, query, and analyze genomic, transcriptomic, and other omics data. By removing the undifferentiated heavy lifting, customers can generate deeper insights from omics data to improve health and advance scientific discoveries. 

Omics WDL, Nextflow, and CWL workflow languages are available in all AWS Regions where Amazon Omics is generally available: US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt, Ireland, London), and Asia Pacific (Singapore).
