Bo Peng
Assistant Professor, The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center


Bo Peng is an assistant professor in the Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at the University of Texas’s MD Anderson Cancer Center. Drawing on his background in mathematics, bioinformatics, and computer science, Bo applies advanced computational techniques (parallel computation, large-scale simulations) to research topics in population genetics, genetic epidemiology, and bioinformatics. He is the author of leading population genetics simulator simuPOP as well as software tools for the integrated annotation, manipulation, and analysis of genetic variants from whole exome and whole genome sequencing studies (Variant Tools), with Script of Scripts being his most recent project.

Bo Peng (The University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center)
Bo Peng offers an overview of Script of Scripts (SoS), a Python 3-based workflow engine with a Jupyter frontend that allows the use of multiple kernels in one notebook. This unique combination enables users to analyze data using multiple scripting languages in one notebook and, if needed, convert scripts to workflows in situ to analyze large amounts of data on remote systems.
