2.1 BCO App Overview

The current version of the BCO App expands upon our initial prototype developed for the precisionFDA BioCompute Object Challenge. The precisionFDA challenge required the submitted tools to support the display, creation, and validation of BCOs. Our current tool also includes support for selecting inputs from both your local machine and from files stored on the Cancer Genomics Cloud, as well as selecting inputs from the suite of Seven Bridges Platforms. BCO App supports interactive as well as semi-automated BCO construction. For example, you have the option to select a CWL workflow on the CGC as a way to pre-populate workflows-related BCO fields.
