Short Description

BioVeL is a virtual e-laboratory that supports research on biodiversity issues using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary sources. BioVeL offers the possibility to use computerised "workflows" (series of data analysis steps) to process data, be that from one's own research and/or from existing sources. BioVeL is funded through the European Community 7th Framework Programme and is free and available to use via the Internet.

The BioVeL Portal is a browser-based interface that contains everything necessary to run your workflow without you having to install anything on your own computer. The main features of the BioVeL Portal include:

  • Uploading your own workflows or workflows you have obtained from, for example myExperiment.
  • Browse the main features of the workflows
  • Running workflows
  • Viewing results
  • Downloading and saving results locally.

You can find an instance of the BioVeL Portal here.

Use Case

Deploy the Biovel Portal on the EGI Federated Cloud.
