A posteriori metadata from automated provenance tracking: integration of AiiDA and TCOD

J Cheminform
PMCID: 5686034
PMID: 29138947
DOI: 10.1186/s13321-017-0242-y

[…] also supplemented with the source code. In our experience, this representation is sufficient at the moment and can be easily extended in the future, for instance using virtual machines (e.g. QEMU [], VirtualBox [], VMware [] or similar techniques), or Docker [], that has rapidly become a widespread tool to reproduce a given computational environment. The presence of full process provenance informa […]


Methods for enhancing the reproducibility of biomedical research findings using electronic health records

BioData Min
PMCID: 5594436
PMID: 28912836
DOI: 10.1186/s13040-017-0151-7
call_split See protocol

[…] led using a library that is no longer available in newer versions of an operating system. These issues can potentially be mitigated through the use of virtualization []. Virtual machines (e.g. Oracle VirtualBox [], VMware []) are essentially containers that can encapsulate a snapshot of the OS, data and analytical pipelines in a single binary file. This can be done irrespective of the “host” opera […]

[…] wiki) and gain access to the Mycobacteriophage database managed by Graham Hatfull at the University of Pittsburg and Steve Cresawn at James Madison University. The virtual hard drive can be run using VirtualBox ( or other virtualization software. At BYU, Phamerator is accessible in the Windows environment by forwarding an X11 window over SSH from a Linux virtual machine (VM) run […]
