Developing a Linked Open Data Registry plugin for Taverna Workflows

Thesis type
  • Bachelor
Status Open

Analyzing and processing open RDF data sources is vital for stimulating new discoveries in medicine. The Taverna workflow management system is an Apache incubator project ( ). The system enables scientist to create and store re-executable data analytics workflows which are described in the XML-based language SCUFL. Taverna is adopted by many research groups working in a variety of fields including bioinformatics (such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics), text mining, biodiversity and the Virtual Physiological Human. For life scientists, it is important to access distributed, changing sources such as Bio2RDF and DisGeNET-RDF to improve their outcomes. In this thesis, a Taverna plug-in will be developed to access open RDF data sources. The plug-in will browse services in RDF endpoints, query metadata, and add them to Taverna workflows.
