[…] (mainly rna-seq) (iii) to implement data-mining tools and (iv) to provide the data to both researchers and general public. for the implementation of the bbbhub, we will use the frame work “openbis”, an open source platform for managing scientific information, as its backbone. furthermore, we are developing an easy-to-use front-end system to allow all researchers to use it independently […]

[…] 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 […]
