Abstract
In this workshop bioinformaticians and computational biologists will meet with the bioKepler team to clarify specific technical requirements for bioKepler tool and workflow development. The two focus areas for the workshop are (i) evaluation of bioinformatics and computational tools for bioActor development; and (ii) generation of bioinformatics workflows based on conceptual workflows presented by workshop attendees. As a part of this workshop, the organizers will conduct a formal survey of use cases and translate them into functional bioKepler requirements.     We request use of FutureGrid to run a instances of the bioKepler VM, originally developed on EC2.  
Use of FutureSystems
For workshop on September 5-6, 2012
Scale of Use
Start up 28 instances of biokepler VM for use during workshop.
