Synopsis

As a growing number of scientific activities involve computers, there are increasing needs to make important activities accountable in computer systems, e.g., people may be interested in how a conclusion is drawn, what data support a claim and what tools are used for processing the data. Existing efforts related to this problem include data provenance management in database area and scientific workflow management in Grid computing area. However, these works do not explicitly addresses accountability problem. The project intends to produce a few mechanisms to manage distributed workflow and data for attesting complex bioinformatics computing processes.
