BioFlow: A Web-Based Declarative Workflow Language for Life Sciences
Scientific workflows in Life Sciences are usually complex, and use many online databases, analysis tools, publication repositories and customized computation intensive desktop software in a coherent manner to respond to investigative queries. These investigative queries are generally ad hoc, ill-formed, and often, used only once to test a single hypothesis. In such cases, developing customized workflows becomes a major undertaking, rendering the effort truly expensive, prohibitive and resource intensive. Such high development costs often act as deterrents to many interesting queries and promising on-time scientific discoveries. In this paper, we introduce a new query language that combines workflow features for scientific applications, called BioFlow, that exploits many recent developments in internet communication, databases, wrapper and mediator technologies, ontology, and data integration. BioFlow larative language that abstracts these features to help hide most procedural aspects ...
