Background: The Docker project is providing a promising strategy for the development of virtualization systems in bioinformatics. However, implementation, management, and launching of Docker containers is not entirely trivial for users not fully familiarized with command line interfaces. This has prompted the development of graphical user interfaces to facilitate the interaction of inexperienced users with Docker environments. Results: We describe the BioPortainer Workbench, an integrated Docker system that assists inexperienced users in interacting with a bioinformatics-dedicated Docker environment at 3 main levels: (i) infrastructure, (ii) platform, and (iii) application. Conclusions: The BioPortainer Workbench represents a pioneering effort in developing a comprehensive and easy-to-use Docker platform focused on bioinformatics, which may greatly assist in the dissemination of Docker virtualization technology in this complex field of research.
