E-Biology Workflows with Calvin
Web portals enable sharing, execution and monitoring of scientific workflows, but usually depend on external development systems, with notations, which strive to support general workflows, but are still too complex for every-day use by biologists. The distinction between web-based and non-web based tools is likely to further irritate users. We extend our work on collaborative workflow design, by introducing a web-based scientific workflow system, that enables easy-to-use semantic service composition with a domain specific workflow notation.
