Taverna-Galaxy integration is a first step towards making Galaxy and Taverna 2 more interoperable. It allows the automatic generation of a Galaxy tool from a Taverna 2 workflow. That tool can then be installed as usual in a Galaxy server. It will allow the Taverna workflow to become part of a Galaxy pipeline. It has been developed by Kostas Karasavvas of NBIC.
Users do not need to install Taverna-Galaxy themselves. It is available as part of the myExperiment Web site. While browsing Taverna 2 workflows the user will see an additional link “Download as Galaxy Tool” in the download section of the workflow. The following page will provide instructions (and references) as well as an option to download the current workflow as a Galaxy tool.
More information and contact details are available on the Taverna-Galaxy wiki.
Taverna-Galaxy in use
Dr Casey Bergman and his group of Life Sciences researchers from the Bergman Lab @ University of Manchester working on eukaryotic genome biology have successfully installed and used the integrated Taverna-Galaxy tools.
See their blog about their experiences in installing and running Taverna-Galaxy.
