iPlant Discovery Environment and API: Integration of Biological Data-sets, Computational Tools, and Analytical Workflows.

With current high-throughput data collection methodologies, plant biologists often find themselves overwhelmed by the amount of data to process. Similarly, there are many analytical tools from which to choose when processing these data, many of which require knowledge of using the command-line interface and high performance computers. iPlant's web-based Discovery Environment allows biologists to easily manage and share biological data, computational tools, and analytical workflows. Furthermore, iPlant provides two APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to allow researchers to integrate additional tools and to access tools and data through the web. This workshop will focus on using iPlant's web-based Discovery Environment to create and share workflows to process data and on using iPlant's APIs to integrate new tools.
