Technical Report HW-MACS-TR-0063

TitleSealife Evaluation
AuthorsGus Ferguson, Kenneth McLeod, Karen Sutherland, Albert Burger
AbstractThis report describes the evaluation and analysis of the Goal Generation and Planning System (GGAPS) and the Argumentation System that are part of the SEALIFE Project (1). The GGAPS System assists Biologists and Bioinformaticians to plan and execute bioinformatics workflows online. The system takes bioinformatics resource and determines the available online processes that the resource can be submitted to. It then suggests possible workflows to achieve goals of interest to the biologist. The user selects a workflow and the system automatically executes it using the resource selected by the user and the appropriate online processes. The Argumentation System assists Biologists and Bioinformaticians in resolving conflicts between online gene expression databases on whether or not genes are expressed in particular tissues. The Edinburgh Mouse Atlas Gene Expression (EMAGE) database (2), Gene Expression Database (GXD) (3) and Mouse Atlas of Gene Expression database (SAGE) (4) are the basis of the use case for the current iteration of the system.
