GigaScience´s Impact Factor

Even though the editors of GigaScience don’t like Impact Factors (and I agree with them), GigaScience has received a very high Impact Factor, 7.46. I’m quite happy since we published a paper in GigaScience last year, Enhanced reproducibility of SADI web service workflows with Galaxy and Docker.

Ontology Pre Processor Language for Galaxy

I have just released the first version of OPPL Galaxy, a wrapper of OPPL for the Galaxy platform. OPPL is an scripting language for manipulating ontologies; Galaxy is a platform for executing Bioinformatics workflows. Since ontologies are an important part of data analysis in Bioinformatics, it made sense to adapt OPPL to Galaxy. Plus it was really easy 😉

You can find it in the Galaxy Tool Shed, under Ontology Manipulation.

OPPL Galaxy is built on top of OPPL API, OWL API and Pellet. Thanks to all of them!

Terp syntax

Terp, part of pellet, can be used to perform SPARQL-like queries against OWL ontologies using the right OWL syntax (Not based in triples). Nice.
