This one-day workflow training event provides an introduction to the Inforsense workflow platform. It will cover the basic concepts of workflows, how to create a workflow, and how to deploy a workflow to the Web portal. It will also demonstrate some specific CWEB workflows that researchers have found useful here at the University of Minnesota. The tutorial will emphasize the implementation and integration of data workflow technology to accelerate the development and deployment of customized bioinformatics applications with re-usable software components.
A workflow platform is a program that allows a user to see and work with a high-level representation of an analytical process. Workflows have been used in the business world, and are gaining popularity in the realm of bioinformatics.
