Abstract

Because of the evolution of sequencing technologies, Bioinformatics Workflow Management Systems (BWMS) are a popular software for geneticists to describe workflows for analysing genomic data. Although these systems improve development productivity, they are far from being widely accepted by this community. The lack of rigorous conceptual model-ling-practices explains the complexity to adapt this genetic analysis software to context changes. In order to face this adaptation issue, we propose using the capability notion as a modelling primitive for providing a sound conceptual background. This paper analyses, from a capability-driven perspective, how daily practices in a bioinformatics SME could be represented as capabilities. From this real scenario, we state current capabilities and explain how they can be supported using current BWMS. As a lessons learned, we discuss how the introductions of capability-driven development could improve their daily work
