Workflows are an accepted approach for constructing computational scientific experiments. Provenance capture during workflow execution captures the creation history of datasets. This record is essential to the long-term preservation and reuse of the data, and to making determinations of its quality. We are applying provenance collection to the open-source Life Science Grid (LSG) using the Karma tool, and extending the information with semantic information using S-OGSA. The project raises interesting challenges in instrumentation, annotation, and visualization of provenance data.
