How do I support building a guix package over multiple machines in a cloud environment?

Simon directed me from help-guix to wake up this list. I have a use
case or a colleague to articulate their work as a guix package. I'm
still very new, and would like to use this as a learning opportunity.
He uses it as a bioinformatics workflow to generate some analysis. It
typically runs in 6 threads, 42GB peak memory, 100GB of on disk files,
and is currently using nextflow. This seems like a perfect use case
to try out doing more with guix/gwl. His workflow is more analogous
to software packaging that a dumb software pipeline or even a re-run
optimized bioinformatics pipeline.
Is this kind of use case supported? If so, how so? Is nextflow not
practical to keep? Please, someone catch me up here so I can start to
write code to help him out. If this goes well, my company could
integrate for gwl/guix in our work, which would be amazing.
