Bein is a provenance and workflow management system for bioinformatics.

Latest on Hackage:0.3.3

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Bein is a provenance and workflow system for bioinformatics. Typically a bioinformaticist ends up with a dozen scripts and a thousand or so files from running the scripts with slightly varying parameters and no way to keep track of what came from where. Bein resolves this by keeping scripts, and their executions on inputs and the resulting outputs, in a database, and providing a web interface to the system.

Organization of the build directory

The build directory contains the following items:

bein.cabal -- The equivalent of a Makefile for Haskell
doc/ -- Documentation for the system
priv/files/ -- A default directory for data files stored in Bein
priv/scratch/ -- A default working directory for scripts run by Bein
Setup.lhs -- Part of the infrastructure needed by bein.cabal. DO NOT EDIT.
sql/ -- All code for setting up the PostgreSQL database
src/ -- Haskell source code
templates/ -- Template files for the web interface
