Using Provenance to support Good Laboratory Practice in Grid Environments

  title={Using Provenance to support Good Laboratory Practice in Grid Environments},
  author={Miriam Ney and Guy K. Kloss and Andreas Schreiber},
Conducting experiments and documenting results is daily business of scientists. Good and traceable documentation enables other scientists to confirm procedures and results for increased credibility. Documentation and scientific conduct are regulated and termed as “good laboratory practice.” Laboratory notebooks are used to record each step in conducting an experiment and processing data. Originally, these notebooks were paper based. Due to computerised research systems, acquired data became… 

Data Management According to the Good Scientific Practice

A simple way to manage the scientific data that ensures long-term protection and provability of the data quality is introduced and an easy to use implementation which offers a possibility to structure the data and to archive it according to Good Scientific Practice is presented.

Visualizing Provenance using Comics

This work presents a visualization technique for data provenance using comics strips, intended to enable people to understand the provenance of their data and realize crucial points more easily.

Open Data, Grey Data, and Stewardship: Universities at the Privacy Frontier

This paper explores the competing values inherent in data stewardship and makes recommendations for practice, drawing on the pioneering work of the University of California in privacy and information security, data governance, and cyber risk.

Standardisierung eines erweiterbaren Modells für Provenance-Daten

Die Aufzeichnung detaillierter Informationen uber die Entstehung und den Ursprung von Daten wird als Provenance bezeichnet. Basierend auf einem Modell des aufzuzeichnenden Prozesses werden alle



Enabling a Data Management System to Support the "Good Laboratory Practice"

The aim of this thesis is to develop a new approach to substitute paper based notebooks with an open source data management system with necessary features for a laboratory notebook to simplify the scientist's work.

A survey of data provenance techniques

The main aspect of the taxonomy categorizes provenance systems based on why they record provenance, what they describe, how they represent and storeprovenance, and ways to disseminate it can help those building scientific and business metadata-management systems to understand existing provenance system designs.

The Foundations for Provenance on the Web

This monograph contends that provenance can and should reliably be tracked and exploited on the Web, and investigates the necessary foundations to achieve such a vision, as well as identifying an open approach and a model for provenance.

Why and Where: A Characterization of Data Provenance

An approach to computing provenance when the data of interest has been created by a database query is described, adopting a syntactic approach and present results for a general data model that applies to relational databases as well as to hierarchical data such as XML.

PrIMe: a software engineering methodology for developing provenance-aware applications

PrIMe is a software engineering methodology for adapting applications to enable them to interact with a provenance middleware layer, thereby making them provenance-aware.

Connecting arbitrary data resources to the grid

This paper describes a different but easy and generic approach to connect any data systems to the grid, by providing a service with an abstract framework to convert any underlying data system protocol to the GridFTP protocol, a de facto standard of data transfer for the grid.

Data Provenance and Reproducibility in Grid Based Scientific Workflows

A non-intrusive way of collecting data provenance information is introduced, using WS-notifications produced by WSRF Services that expose data and simulation models that interact by exchanging data.

Provenance of Software Development Processes

An approach to make the SDP provenance-aware is proposed based on PRiME, the Open Provenance Model and a SOA architecture using Neo4j to store the data, Gremlin to query it and REST webservices as connection to the tools.

PrIMe: A methodology for developing provenance-aware applications

The steps involved in applying PrIMe are specified, its effectiveness is analyzed, and its use is illustrated with two case studies, in bioinformatics and medicine.

DataFinder – A Scientific Data Management Solution

The paper shows the extension of the existing architecture to integrate the Grid transport protocol GridFTP and the archiving system Tivoli Storage Manager which leads in a general Grid-enabled data management application that is capable of handling distributed storage resources and archives.
