[Introduction]: There is significant progress being made towards building Semantic Web Services platforms to support
bioinformatics, with “myGrid” [1] and “Bio-Moby” [2] being
the two prominent examples. However, the management
of provenance—which refers to the evolution of information (i.e., from where and how the information is obtained)—is still in very early stage in these systems.

The benefits of scientific provenance management are
two fold:
1. Help to determine the data's value, accuracy and
2. Enable reproducibility and facilitate users in
interpreting and understanding results that can be more
important than the results themselves.

While there are existing efforts to support process
sharing among users—such as “myExperiment”
(—it requires the users to
generate the process manually, which is time consuming
and error prone.
