How AWS Genomics CLI interacts with AWS Accounts
For a general introduction to the AWS Genomics CLI, refer to the Overview.
Amazon Genomics CLI uses a handful of core concepts to abstract the deployment of infrastructure needed to run workflows and to organize workflows and dependencies. Gaining an understanding of the concepts below will help you understand how Amazon Genomics CLI works and how it is organized.

A project defines the contexts, engines, data and workflows that make up a genomics analysis
Contexts are the set of cloud resources used to run a workflow
A Workflow is a series of steps or tasks to be executed as part of an analysis.
Workflow engines parse and manage the tasks in a workflow
Logs are produced by contexts, engines and workflow tasks. Understanding how to access them is critical to monitoring and debugging workflows.
