We present a novel, web-accessible scientific workflow system which makes large-scale comparative studies accessible without programming or excessive configuration requirements. GPFlow allows a workflow defined on single input values to be automatically lifted to operate over collections of input values and supports the formation and processing of collections of values without the need for explicit iteration constructs. We introduce a new model for collection processing based on key aggregation and slicing which guarantees processing integrity and facilitates automatic association of inputs, allowing scientific users to manage the combinatorial explosion of data values inherent in large scale comparative studies. The approach is demonstrated using a core task from comparative genomics, and builds upon our previous work in supporting combined interactive and batch operation, through a lightweight web-based user interface.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
