We illustrate how a domain scientist can perform a complex scientific task by interleaving data access, querying, and manipulation, as well as analytical steps and computations in complex, problem specific ways. We show how our system is used by a geneticist for solving the problem of discovering the so-called "co-regulated" genes by interlinking data and computation from several Web sites, local computations, as well as local and remote databases. The main distinctive features of our system (compared, e.g., to the ZOO environment (Ioannidis et al., 1996)) include: (i) executable workflows run as Web services; (ii) abstract workflows employ concept names and semantic types that are higher-level (and thus more "scientist friendly") than executable workflows; and (iii) our system supports automatic translation of the latter into the former.
