Characterization and expression analysis of Galnts in developing Strongylocentrotus purpuratus embryos

PLoS One
PMCID: 5407767
PMID: 28448610
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0176479

[…] ighbor Interchanges (NNIs) algorithm. To obtain statistical support, bootstrapping was applied for 1000 iterations.The second method uses a Bayesian approach using MrBayes v3.1.2 [] as implemented in Armadillo v1.1 (, a novel workflow platform dedicated to designing and conducting phylogenetic studies []. One cold and two incrementally heated Markov chain Monte […]


LMAP: Lightweight Multigene Analyses in PAML

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5011788
PMID: 27597435
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-016-1204-5

[…] rone and time-consuming.To overcome such difficulties several bioinformatics resources have been developed. They can be organized in two paradigms: single-task (one instance, one execution: JCoDA [], Armadillo [], PAMLX [], IMPACT_S []) and multi-task (one instance, several executions: IDEA [], gcodeml [], POTION [], VESPA []). In the single-task software group, SM executions are possible in all s […]


Parallel computing in genomic research: advances and applications

PMCID: 4655901
PMID: 26604801
DOI: 10.2147/AABC.S64482

[…] calability perspective. Since EDGAR is designed to execute only on computing clusters, it cannot benefit from other infrastructures such as grids or clouds, unless important adaptations are performed.Armadillo is an open-source workflow system designed for modeling and executing phylogenomic analyses. It allows for scientists to develop their own application, that authors named as modules (conside […]


Classification of bioinformatics workflows using weighted versions of partitioning and hierarchical clustering algorithms

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4354763
PMID: 25887434
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-015-0508-1

[…] To evaluate the four workflow encoding schemes defined above, we considered a set of 120 bioinformatics workflows created and executed using the Armadillo phylogenetic WfMS [] as well as 100 workflows created using Taverna [] and extracted from the myExperiment workflow repository [] (Table ). The Armadillo dataset contained four original work […]


Osiris: accessible and reproducible phylogenetic and phylogenomic analyses within the Galaxy workflow management system

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4227113
PMID: 24990571
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-15-230

[…] constrains flexibility and future development. A flexible approach to improving transparency in bioinformatics is to employ open source workflow management systems, such as Kepler, GeneProf, Taverna, Armadillo, Galaxy, and others [-].The Galaxy workflow management system has extensive bioinformatic analysis tools, and provides a number of useful features that can be leveraged for phylogenetic anal […]


Workflow management systems for gene sequence analysis and evolutionary studies – A Review

PMCID: 3732438
PMID: 23930017
DOI: 10.6026/97320630009663

[…] mber of nucleotide sequences to build a phylogenetic evolutionary tree. The web server [] is designed for non-specialists and has up-to-date programs that are often designed for experts. Armadillo v1.1 [] is a novel workflow platform dedicated to designing and conducting phylogenetic studies, including comprehensive simulations. As Armadillo is an open-source project, it allows scient […]
