SeqAn is part of the CIBI, the Center for Integrative BIoinformatics, which is itself a center in the Gemran network for Bioinformatics infrastructure. In the CIBI SeqAn, OpenMS and KNIME are supported.

Example workflow using the applications Yara and SLIMM

As such SeqAn support easy integration of all its applications into workflow and data analysis engines, such as KNIME. If you use the SeqAn command line parser, your application can write a desription of itself (command line parameters, usage help, etc.) into an well defined XML format, and we use this to automatically convert an SeqAn application into a KNIME workflow node.

Pretty convenient, isn’t it?
