# Code
Most of the code developed for Guix-HPC aims to consolidate [the code
base](https://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/guix.git/)
and [package collection](https://gnu.org/software/guix/packages) of Guix
proper, and thus be pushed upstream. This has already given rise to a
large collection of bioinformatics, algebra, and R packages, as well as
features to simplify Guix deployment on clusters.
Some auxiliary tools and package sets are maintained elsewhere, or kept
in a staging area until they are mature enough to be submitted for
inclusion in Guix:
- The [Guix Workflow Language](https://www.guixwl.org/), a lightweight
framework implementing reproducible computational pipelines.
- [hpcguix-web](https://github.com/UMCUGenetics/hpcguix-web) is a web
interface that allows users to search for packages and guides them
the installation and the job submission process.
- The [Guix-HPC repository](https://gitlab.inria.fr/guix-hpc/guix-hpc)
currently contains packages for HPC tools and run-time support
and linear algebra libraries developed by research teams
at [Inria Bordeaux](https://www.inria.fr/en/centre/bordeaux).
All this is [free software](https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html)
that you are welcome to use and contribute to!
