E. D. Frank and R. L. Stevens, "Process Modeling for High-Throughput Biology," Preprint ANL/MCS-TM-276, October 2004. [pdf]
We interviewed researchers at two high-throughput biology laboratories in order to identify and to understand their workflows. We constructed and studied a detailed process model for one of the labs. Based on these efforts and on the benefits of the model to the experimenters, we discuss here ideas for applying process modeling to high-throughput biology laboratories.
