I am one of the myGrid developers working in University of Manchester, mainly working on Taverna, but also involved in myExperiment development. Most of the workflows I will publish here on myExperiment are either test workflows (that highlight bugs in Taverna!), technique workflows (like how to do iteration or XML parsing) or other people's workflows that again break Taverna in one way or another.

Workflow Hello abcd (1)

Thumb
Example of using the same inserted nested workflow twice, iterating over it twice, which should mean 4 distinct calls to the inner "concatenate" process. This workflow is mainly useful for provenance testing purposes.

Thumb
Look up concept URI from freetext, e.g. "aspirin", find compound pharmacology and their target info. For each target, blast+tree on its sequence - if any. Uses the Open PHACTS API https://dev.openphacts.org/docs/1.5. Notice that in tihs workflow, most concepts won't have compounds, and most compounds won't have targets, and most targets won't have a sequence - Open PHACT API wise this means this workflow would be propagating 404 Not Found errors. Until there is a Local worker to filter out...

Workflow Refresh SPI after plugin installation (1)

Thumb
This workflow hacks into Taverna's plugin system to force update the net.sf.taverna.t2.workbench.views.results.saveactions.SaveAllResultsSPIRegistry SPI, which means it is possible to install/update the Taverna PROV plugin without restarting. This is needed to enable live update of this plugin, because there is a bug in Taverna 2.4 and below where the SPI registries are not updated correctly after installation of a plugin.

Workflow Visualize PAV provenance as SVG (2)

Thumb
VoID descriptions are fetched as Turtle, cleaned up to be valid OWL ontology and include useful labels, processed through the OWL reasoner Pellet; this adds inferred PROV statements to the RDF, which is then fed to the PROV Toolbox, generating an SVG visualization of the provenance. Note that this workflow downloads CWM, Pellet and ProvToolbox on demand, and uses UNIX command line tools like wget and md5 which are unlikely to work in Windows. This workflow has been tested on Ubuntu 12.10 wit...

Workflow Find workflow ancestors (2)

Given a t2flow file (Taverna 2 workflow), extract ancestor workflow UUIDs and search myExperiment for matching workflow entries. Note that this will also match the workflow itself and nested workflows, but does not match against other workflows having the same ancestors (but newer UUIDs).

Workflow WCP-04 Exclusive choice - if/else branching (1)

Thumb
The choice of executing choiceA or choiceB is determined by using String_List_Intersection and String_List_Difference. If in="true" then the intersection will yield a non-empty list, triggering execution of choiceA. This list will however not differ from the input, and so choiceB will iterate over an empty list (ie. not execute). Note how using 'difference' for the else-case here means that if you run the workflow with in="bob", choiceB would still run. Some early if/el...

This workflow receives a list of galaxy names (hyperLEDA names. ie: KIG0001) and a file with the morphological types of those galaxies Using the name of a galaxy, the workflow querys Hyperleda to extract some properties of this galaxy (J2000 Coordinates, velocity, galactic extinction,log of axis ratio, and the Total B-magnitude ).

Workflow Hello Anyone (1)

Workflow Merge list of errors to string (2)

Thumb
Based on http://myexperiment.elda.org/workflows/27/ The beanshell scripts collectively builds a temporary file of the merged string (by default using newline as separator). As each item is appended to the file separately by Write_text_append, this means it can handle occassional errors in the list, such as in the output from Sometimes_fails. Such items are not included in the merged string. To use, merge with your workflow and delete "Create_Lots_if_Strings", "Sometimes_Fai...

Create_lots_of_strings gives implicit iteration over the service add_a_and_b - assume this is a service that returns two values which you now want to keep in a list [a,b]. The shim Create_list takes two single inputs, and returns a list of [in1, in2]. Configured with the Dot product list strategy it means that it will pipeline out [a1,b1], [a2,b2], [a3,b3] etc.Create_lots_of_strings gives implicit iteration over the service add_a_and_b - assume this is a service that returns two values which...

Thumb
Perform Roden and Invertebrates BLAST sequence alignments (using DDBJ Blast) on the gene sequences for a (semi-random) selection of genes from Human sapiens chromosome 22. (Using Biomart). blast_ddbj_invertebrates and blast_ddbj_rodents should execute in parallel as they don't depend on each other.

This is the folder that is typically something like C:\Users\stain\AppData\Roaming\taverna-2.1.2, C:\Documents and settings\stain\taverna-2.1.2, /home/stain/.taverna-2.1.2 or /Users/stain/Library/Application support/taverna-2.1.2 This workflow should work on both Taverna 1 and Taverna 2.

Workflow Dummy example of looping (3)

Thumb
Example of looping over asynchronous services. The dummy beanshell scripts represents the operations of an asynchronous submit-status-results style service, such as EBI's InterProScan and NCBI Blast. createJob creates a temporary file with the content "0". Filename retuirned as a "job ID". checkStatus reads the job, and return state "RUNNING" as long as the content is less than 10, increasing the number for each call. (As no actual job is being run) getResults reads the file content, with...

Workflow Pattern: Return errors instead of null (1)

Thumb
 As Taverna can't (currently) handle null (see http://www.mygrid.org.uk/dev/issues/browse/TAV-653) - in Taverna 2 one can instead return exceptions on individual ports and inside lists. Exceptions are registered as error documents by Taverna, and are passed along. The ErrorBounce layer of processors downstream will prevent execution if they see this 'null'-exception - as showed in this example that the string concatination is just run for the two list elements that are not exceptio...

Workflow A workflow version of the EMBOSS tutorial (1)

Thumb
Designed to show the use of EMBOSS based Soaplab services from Taverna, this workflow has no inputs as all initial values are specified as string constants. A sequence set is fetched using the seqret tool, then simultaneously scanned for predicted transmembrane regions and subjected to a multiple alignment using emma. This alignment is then plotted to a set of PNG images and also used to build a profile using the prophecy and prophet tools.
