The ISAconfigurator allows for creation of XML files (configuration files) used to build spreadsheets in the ISAcreator and for validation in the creator and ISAvalidation code. Led by Eamonn Maguire, Philippe Rocca-Serra (Uni. of Oxford).
Risa allows to access metadata/data in ISA-tab format and builds Bioconductor data structures. Apart from parsing ISA-tab files, the package also provides functionality to save the ISA-tab dataset, or each of its individual files. Additionally, it is also possible to update assay files. Currently, metadata associated to proteomics and metabolomics-based assays (i.e. mass spectrometry) can be processed into an xcmsSet object (from the xcms R package).
This package is a generic implementation of a method for producing spreadsheets out of pipeline graphs. It is based on the computation of the minimum flow from all the sources to all the sink nodes, having set at 1 the lower bound for all the experimental workflow arcs (and no upper bound, i.e. capacity) restrictions.
