Interpretive Summary: We have developed a lightweight bioinformatics workflow platform, SciApps, to automate complicated analysis workflow. The platform is powered by the CyVerse infrastructure, and uses the Agave Science API to manage the entire cycle of analysis jobs between XSEDE HPC and the CyVerse Data Store. SciApps also provides a graphical user interface for job submission, workflow creation, and management.

Technical Abstract: SciApps, a lightweight bioinformatics workflow system powered by the CyVerse infrastructure, uses the Agave Science API to manage the entire cycle of analysis jobs between XSEDE HPC and the CyVerse Data Store. SciApps provides a graphical user interface for job submission, workflow creation, and management of both jobs and workflows. Each reproducible workflow, along with all inputs and results, is retrievable with a unique ID.
