The myExperiment interface. myExperiment allows to up- and download, analyse and run workflows. The pictured workflow (1) looks for diseases relevant to a query string. It finds documents related to the words in the query string, proteins from the abstract of the retrieved papers, filter false positive by requiring that they have a valid UniProt ID. Finally, it links proteins to diseases contained in the OMIM database (highlighted in the red box). A user must register (2) and he can then create or join some groups (3). The system keeps trace of his friends and workflows (3) and personal information (5). Other users can recommend his work ‘credibility’ (4). A web navigator can search for workflows, users and groups by inserting key words (6).
