The BioExtract Server is a web-based system for querying biomolecular sequence data, executing analytic tools on the resulting extracts, and constructing workflows composed of such queries and tools.[1]

It offers a central distribution point for uniformly formatted data from a variety of resources including EMBL, SwissProt, and PlantGDB.

It also gives researchers access to a variety of analytic tools, including BLAST, Clustal, and T-Coffee, and the BioMOBY and EBI Soaplab Web services.

Researchers create workflows implicitly by working with the system. Tasks such as saving a data extract, executing an analytic tool, and querying a data source are automatically saved each time they are performed during a session. At any time, a workflow can be created by saving these recorded tasks, and once saved, the workflow can be edited.[2][3][4]

The BioExtract Server was created in The Brendel Group[5] at Iowa State University in collaboration with Visual Metrics Corporation funded by NSF grant 0090732.[6] Continuing development by the Lushbough Bioinformatics Group at The University of South Dakota is supported by NSF grant 0321600.[7]
