WS-BioZard: A Wizard for Composing Bioinformatics Web Services

Zhiming Wang, John A. Miller, Jessica C. Kissinger, Rui Wang, Douglas Brewer, Cristina Aurrecoechea
2008 2008 IEEE Congress on Services - Part I  
Therefore, lowering the learning curve for Web service composition to make it easier for biologists is becoming a critical need.  ...  Recently, we have seen an increasing amount of interest in the composition of biological Web services in order to process a biological task.  ...  All these activities are transparent to the end user. Third, the Web service information in the palette is dynamically populated by querying the semantic UDDI registry.  ...

V-Lab-Protein: Virtual Collaborative Lab for protein sequence analysis

Jong Youl Choi, Youngik Yang, Sun Kim, Dennis Gannon
2007 2007 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine Workshops  
We believe that this system design principle will be a new and effective paradigm for small biology research labs to handle the ever-increasing biological data.  ...  To response such requirements, we designed and implemented a virtual lab, named Virtual Collaborative Lab (V-Lab-Protein), using an efficient and flexible computing resource management and workflow engine  ...  To convert a bioinformatics application into an application service, we use a tool, called Generic Service Toolkit (Gfac) [5] . Gfac provides two services, a factory service and a registry service.  ...
