Bioinformatic research relies on large-scale computational infrastructures which have a non-zero carbon footprint. So far, no study has quantified the environmental costs of bioinformatic tools and commonly run analyses. In this study, we estimate the bioinformatic carbon footprint (in kilograms of CO2 equivalent units, kgCO2e) using the freely available Green Algorithms calculator (www.green-algorithms.org). We assess (i) bioinformatic approaches in genome-wide association studies (GWAS), RNAdoi:10.1101/2021.03.08.434372 fatcat:tdybp6qetrdfzo5mcswehirbd4
