Taverna Workbench Core 2.5.0
Taverna Workbench Core is such a system, allowing you to build and run scientific workflows using general service types, such as WSDL and REST web services, command line tools and scripts (R, Beanshell), user interactions, including support for general data formats like XML and spreadsheets. The program uses Java to properly function, coming bundled with the setup pack.
Handy program for creating scientific workflows
The application aids you in the creation and observation of the results provided by in silico experimentation on certain areas of interest. This makes the program suitable for building scientific workflows in any domain, as it accesses general services such as REST or SOAP Web services and command line tools.
Furthermore, in silico experiments provide researchers with higher precision and better quality of experimental data, as well as better support for data-intensive research and access to vast sets of experimental data generated by scientific communities.
Complex tool for in silico experimentation
Taverna Workbench Core can help you get more accurate simulations and test results, as you can build more and more sophisticated models for your individual experiments. This increases the productivity of your workflows, as certain models can be saved and reused in similar experiments.
Aside from this, the program is pretty easy to use, as it has a clean-cut interface, although uninitiated researchers might have a hard time understanding what should they do to perform certain experiments.
A potent utility for workflow experimentation
To sum it up, Taverna Workbench Core is ideal for conducting in silico experimentation on certain areas of interest, providing researchers with a stable and efficient workbench for conducting their simulations. Although it has an intuitive interface, the application requires prior knowledge on how in silico experiments should be conducted, and it could give novice researchers a hard time.
