PMID: 28381997
DOI: 10.3389/fninf.2017.00021

[…] et al., ) was one of the first general-purpose scientific workflow systems, recognizing the need for transparent and simplified access to high performance computing platforms more than a decade ago. pegasus (deelman et al., ) is a system that initially gained popularity for mapping complex workflows to resources resources in distributed environments without requiring input from the user., psom […]

PMCID: 5437943
PMID: 28327945
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/gix015

[…] this, gui-enabled software for automating pipeline development improves the reproducibility, accessibility, and transparency of running genomic analyses []. examples include galaxy [], taverna [], pegasus [], and commercial software packages such as geneious []. in particular, the galaxy project offers many attractive features for this goal while remaining open-source. namely, galaxy boasts […]

[…] a target naming scheme (). figure 4, many pipeline frameworks dispense with inline scripting code and instead use a configuration-based, rather than convention-based, means of describing tasks. pegasus [] is a national science foundation (nsf)-funded workflow system originally designed for the physical sciences. like all configuration-based frameworks, pegasus is explicit—it […]

[…] and execution of sophisticated workflows. examples of the systems that support sequence analysis applications include, among others, taverna [, ], kepler [], triana [, ], galaxy [], conveyor [] pegasus [], and pegasys []. in these systems, the workflows are represented in the form of a directed graph, where nodes represent tasks to be executed and edges represent either data flow […]

[…] but also for those who want to consolidate open and cooperative systems [,]., an additional level of flexibility may be achieved by workflow management systems such as taverna [], galaxy [] and pegasus [] that are well suited for analysis tasks that are systematically repeated without changes in the course of execution, such as genome annotation [,] and the tasks registered […]
