Batch processing

Batch processing refers to running an analysis multiple times, once per batch unit. For example, if you have 10 sequence lists and wish to run 10 mapping analyses, one per sequence list, you could launch all 10 analyses by setting up one batch job. Here, each sequence list would be a "batch unit".

This section describes batch processing when using individual analysis tools. Launching workflows using batch functionality is covered in Launching workflows individually and in batches. Running parts of workflows in batches is covered in Batching part of a workflow.
