[…] hylogenetic and biogeographical analyses. These include inferences of, for example, migration, diversification, and niche evolution, some of which are already integrated with SUPERSMART at […]


Sample data processing in an additive and reproducible taxonomic workflow by using character data persistently linked to preserved individual specimens

PMCID: 4589695
PMID: 26424081
DOI: 10.1093/database/bav094

[…] e interfaces to various biodiversity e-infrastructures have been implemented including the GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) Checklist Bank (), Biowikifarm (), Scratchpads (), Plazi (), BioVeL () and Biodiversity Heritage Library ().The EDIT Platform is open source and applicable to all groups of organism, in particular those covered by the ICN () and the International Code of Zoolog […]


PESI a taxonomic backbone for Europe

Biodivers Data J
PMCID: 4609752
PMID: 26491393
DOI: 10.3897/BDJ.3.e5848

[…] ities involved in biodiversity sciences. Interfaces between the EDIT platform and Scratchpads (the primary technological platform for ViBRANT) were defined and implemented (see section 'Progression').BioVeL developed tools for pipelining data and analysis in Biodiversity Sciences into efficient workflows. One aspect of BioVeL is to expose EDIT platform services in a way that makes them efficiently […]

[…] s such as Taverna [], Kepler [], or Galaxy [] and access to them can be made available by web services. Recently, workflow portals such as Biowep [] (Workflow Enactment Portal for Bioinformatics) and BioVeL [] (Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory) were organized providing browser-based interfaces and also web services interfaces for remote invocation. Moreover, a comprehensive workflow repository is […]


Enriched biodiversity data as a resource and service
