For R users with the limited computing resources, we introduce AnVILWorkflow
package. This package allows users to run workflows implemented in
[Terra](https://app.terra.bio/#) without writing any workflow, installing
software, or managing cloud resources. Terra's computing resources rely on
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and to use AnVILWorkflow, you only need to
setup the Terra account once at the beginning.
Along with the [AnVIL](https://github.com/Bioconductor/AnVIL) package,
AnVILWorkflow package allows users to access both Terra and GCP through R
session from a conventional laptop, greatly lowers the learning curve for
high-performance, cloud-based genomics resources.

#### Example 1. Microbiome analysis
[bioBakery workflows](https://github.com/biobakery/biobakery_workflows) is a
collection of workflows and tasks for executing common microbial community
analyses using standardized, validated tools and parameters. bioBakery is
built on python and maintained by [Huttenhower lab](http://huttenhower.sph.harvard.edu/).
#### Example 2. Bulk RNAseq analysis
[Salmon](https://combine-lab.github.io/salmon/) is a command-line tool for
quantifying the expression of transcripts using RNA-seq data.
