Dr. Temkin,

How is your schedule on October 20th or 21st for my defense?

Hi Jenny,

At first I thought you were referring to Pegasus:


But then I realized you meant Pegasys:


PegasUs and Taverna are designed to work over a grid (heterogeneous systems 
often connected via WAN).  If you're just trying to create a workflow on a 
homogeneous cluster, something like Condor with DAGMan will probably work


But maybe you're also looking for something with a "connect the dots" 
interface.  Pegasys and Taverna are of course two examples of this.  Here's 
another one that I'm aware of:


And the following are (AFAIK) independent of grid and external scheduling


BioPipe doesn't (yet, AFAIK) have a connect-the-dots GUI, but it's based on
