In August I completed an open call project with Trung Dong Huynh, Luc Moreau and Danius Michaelides of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. As part of their research into provenance, they have developed the Southampton Provenance Tool Suite, a suite of software, libraries and services to capture, store and visualise provenance compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) PROV standards. I developed a test framework in Python, which tests Provenance Tool Suite toolkits and services operating…

I have just completed developing an Interoperability test harness for Provenance Tool Suite. As part of this work, I used the TravisCI hosted continuous integration server for the first time. I've now written up walkthrough of Travis CI as part of our Build and test examples on GitHub.

Today, biologists have access to high-throughput measurement techniques that can assay many variables or entities at the same time. One striking example has been the advent of massively parallel sequencing techniques in the form of next-generation sequencing (NGS).

While the sequencing of the human genome took more than ten years and cost billions of pounds just a decade ago, a researcher can now send off material to a sequencing service and expect the equivalent of multiple human genomes worth of data within a few weeks and for…
