Use public apps (workflows and tools)

BioData Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges offers a repository of publicly available apps suitable for many different types of data analysis.


Apps include both tools (individual bioinformatics utilities) and workflows (chains or pipelines of connected tools).

After you copy them to your project, these apps can be fully modified using the tool editor and the workflow editor.

The public apps are hosted in a gallery for you to locate them easily. Once you access the public apps gallery, you can:

  1. Search for a specific app.
  2. Explore all apps using available filters.
  3. Copy them to your project.
  4. Run them.
