The Taverna workflow tool suite (http://www.taverna.org.uk) is designed to combine distributed Web Services and/or local tools into complex analysis pipelines. These pipelines can be executed on local desktop machines or through larger infrastructure (such as supercomputers, Grids or cloud environments), using the Taverna Server. In bioinformatics, Taverna(More)
Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, doesn't ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attri-bution and methods to provide the(More)
The Taverna workflow management system is an open source project with a history of widespread adoption within multiple experimental science communities, and a long-term ambition of effectively supporting the evolving need of those communities for complex, data-intensive, service-based experimental pipelines. This paper describes how the recently overhauled(More)
This paper presents the rules used within the Open PHACTS (http://www.openphacts.org) Identity Management Service to compute co-reference chains across multiple datasets. The web of (linked) data has encouraged a proliferation of identifiers for the concepts captured in datasets; with each dataset using their own identifier. A key data integration challenge(More)
BACKGROUND Data discovery, particularly the discovery of key variables and their inter-relationships, is key to secondary data analysis, and in-turn, the evolving field of data science. Interface designers have presumed that their users are domain experts, and so they have provided complex interfaces to support these "experts." Such interfaces hark back to(More)
The Open PHACTS Explorer is a web application that supports drug discovery via the Open PHACTS API without requiring knowledge of SPARQL or the RDF data being searched. It provides a UI layer on top of the Open PHACTS linked data cache and also provides a javascript library to facilitate easy access to the Open PHACTS API. 1.1 Introduction A common(More)
