What’s the Answer? Alternatives to Galaxy

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of thecommunity and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This week’s highlighted question is

What are the “alternatives to Galaxy for wrapping a command line tool in GUI?

Or in other words, what workflow systems are out there in addition to Galaxy (a great tool, but sometimes people need something different :).  The answers to this question will help both bioinformaticists who create tools and biologists who use them, giving the former alternatives for doing this if need be and the latter other workflow systems to try out.

Several were highlighted including TavernaYabi and Knime and a list was provided from wikipedia. Check out the answers for more examples.
