Taverna has now moved to the Apache Software Foundation. For updated information, see Apache Taverna (incubating).


The goal of the e-LICO project is to build a virtual laboratory for interdisciplinary collaborative research in data mining and data-intensive sciences. The proposed e-lab will comprise three layers: the e-science and data mining layers will form a generic research environment that can be adapted to different scientific domains by customizing the application layer.

The foundation of the e-science layer is a suite of open source components from the myGrid e-science platform (one of which is the next generation Taverna Workbench). To build the e-LICO infrastructure, these components will be extended with tools for content creation (e.g. semantic annotation, ontology engineering), as well as mechanisms for multiple levels and modes of collaboration in experimental research.

A video tutorial explains how to build data mining workflows.
