Workflow Type: Mobyle

Mobyle is a framework and web portal specifically aimed at the integration of bioinformatics software and databanks.

Mobyle is the successor of Pise and the RPBS server, previous systems that provided web environments to define and execute bioinformatics analyses.


  • data reusability: the tagging of the user data facilitates the reuse of input values or results between different programs.
  • automatic data validation and format conversion: the description of the expected data and their format allows to verify and convert input values if necessary.
  • service discovery and workflow authoring assistance: services are provided through a searchable menu; furthermore, type compatibility mechanisms between results and potential program inputs let users either interactively pipe tasks or build complete workflows before to run them.

Based on extensive user studies, we developed the end-user interface as a Web Portal that provides a global and integrated view of all the elements needed to perform analyses, such as the available programs, the submitted jobs and the data of interest.


Life scientists

Want to run bioanalyses through a web interface without installing anything locally? Many public Mobyle portals provide an access to more than 200 bioinformatics programs.
