A Visual Interface for on-the-fly Biological Database Integration and Workflow Design Using VizBuilder
Abstract. Data integration plays a major role in modern Life Sciences research primarily because required resources are geographically distributed across continents and experts depend upon leveraging these digitally archived resources. The ever changing and exponentially growing digital archives pose a significant challenge for traditional data integration efforts and efficient development of data processing pipelines for scientific investigations. Thus a forceful argument can be made that in Life Sciences fast and ad hoc application design requiring data integration and workflow processing is urgently warranted. In this paper, we present a new visual application design toolkit, called VizBuilder, that can be used to design ad hoc applications at throw away costs by naive users in the Life Sciences to integrate remote databases and to design application pipelines. We leverage the recent development of BioFlow query language and LifeDB database management system that allows for such app...
