A Comprehensive Bioinformatics Scientific Workflow Module for Distributed Analysis of Large-Scale Biological Data

Download bioKepler

bioKepler is a Kepler module of scientific workflow components to execute a set of bioinformatics tools using distributed execution patterns. Once customized, these components are executed on multiple distributed platforms including various Cloud and Grid computing platforms. In addition, we deliver virtual machines including a Kepler engine and all bioinformatics tools and applications we are building components for in bioKepler.

bioKepler is a module that is distributed on top of the core Kepler scientific workflow system. Please refer to the Kepler collaboration website for more information on Kepler in general.
