Taverna is an open source domain independent workflow management system which automates experimental methods through the use of a number of different (local or remote) services from a diverse set of domains such as biology, chemistry and medicine to music, meteorology and social sciences.

Taverna has features such as workflow repository, service catalogue, activity and service plug-in manager, Taverna workbench, Taverna lite, workflow provenance, workflow server, workflow components, interaction server, secure service access, web portals/ gateways, client/user interfaces, third party tools, player, virtual machine, command line and program APIs.

Taverna performs multi-step or repetitive analysis that involves invoking several services, enables users to copy and paste results between different Web pages or services, and automates process. Taverna provides trackable results of experiments using the OPM (Open Provenance Model) standard. Taverna’s workflow provenance gives a detailed trace of workflow execution such as services executed, when, which inputs were used and what outputs were produced.

Taverna allows users to define how their data flows between the services, automate and pipeline processing of their data. Taverna can help users convert data from one format to another.

Taverna’s web-based interface player executes existing workflows through the Taverna Server which can be considered similar to playing videos on YouTube where workflows can be run with data supplied by the creator, or with new data uploaded by the user, but the workflows themselves cannot be altered. Taverna 3 uses SCUFL2 as mechanism for specifying Taverna workflows. Currently, Taverna works with Biomart, SoapLab, SADI, R and Bioconductor.
