Bioinformatics workflow management systems | High-throughput sequencing data analysis
Bioinformatics pipelines can be modeled as workflows where each work item is a stage (executable) in the pipeline. Workflow management software allows for the creation and execution of workflows. They are available as both command line controlled software tools that enable users to program and build custom workflows or they can contain a user-interface for predefined use cases. Web based workflow managers provide great flexibility and enable users to access them from any remote location through a browser. These allow researchers to monitor all executing tasks or create new tasks with minimal programming requirements.
