Jenkins CI, an Open Source Continuous Integration System, as a Scientific Data and Image Processing Platform

SLAS Discov
PMCID: 5322829
PMID: 27899692
DOI: 10.1177/1087057116679993

[…] rmance workflow, it should be noted that a number of similar tools designed to facilitate the design and execution of bioinformatics and imaging workflows already exist. For example, Galaxy, Taverna, openBIS, LONI, and Knime have all been previously described. Each of these systems has unique advantages and disadvantages that require careful consideration before a suitable workflow platform is sel […]
