The software architecture of the Systems Biology Platform:
- The earth symbol represents services or software that are hosted remotely and accessible via the web.
- The rack symbol represents services or software that are hosted at QFAB.
The main workflow engine of the Systems Biology Platform is based on Pipeline Pilot from Accelrys which also provides a set of components for data access, manipulation and analysis.
The specialized software represented on the top layer of figure (GenePattern, R, …) are deployed on a set of Virtual Machines to comply with licences requirement, to provide an interactive access, and to facilitate dependencies. These applications are accessible in standalone and can be integrated in Pipeline Pilot using available or customized web services.
