2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The complexity of scientific workflows for analyzing biological data creates a number of challenges for current workflow and provenance systems.  ...  We present an extended version of the Kepler scientific workflow system to address these challenges, tailored for the systematics community.  ...  Conclusion and Future Work Kepler/pPOD supports the automation of phylogenetics workflows and the recording and visualization of data provenance for individual workflow runs.  ...

One advantage of WATERS over other comprehensive tools is that the use of the Kepler workflow system facilitates result interpretation and reproducibility via a data provenance sub-system.  ...  Furthermore, new "actors" can be added to the workflow as desired and we see WATERS as an initial seed for a sizeable and growing repository of interoperable, easyto-combine tools for asking increasingly  ...  Acknowledgements We are grateful to Srijak Bhatnagar and Jenna Morgan for assistance with preliminary testing of WATERS.  ...
