Tiep Le, Hieu Nguyen, Enrico Pontelli, and Tran Cao Son. ASP at Work: An ASP Implementation of PhyloWS. In Technical Communications of the 28th International Conference on Logic Programming (ICLP'12). Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics (LIPIcs), Volume 17, pp. 359-369, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2012)


This paper continues the exploration started in [Bininda-Emonds,2004], aimed at demonstrating the use of logic programming technology to support a large scale deployment and analysis of phylogenetic data from biological studies. This application paper illustrates the use of ASP technology in implementing the PhyloWS web service API — a recently proposed and community-agreed standard API to enable uniform access and inter-operation among phylogenetic applications and repositories. To date, only very incomplete implementations of PhyloWS have been realized; this paper demonstrates how ASP provides an ideal technology to support a more comprehensive realization of PhyloWS on a repository of semantically-described phylogenetic studies. The paper also presents a challenge for the developers of ASP-solvers.
