I don't have a ton of advice here, I imagine you could hack up Galaxy
to do it. If you a have a fixed workflow or fixed collections of
workflows and very clear vision of what the interface should be I
guess I would just create a web app and target the Galaxy API.
Two projects to checkout would be refinery - which is a webapp that
does a lot of stuff including driving Galaxy workflows. It is a bit
more stripped down than Galaxy and may emphasize what you want:
A good example of actually modifying Galaxy to emphasize certain
workflows would be RNA Rocket (http://rnaseq.pathogenportal.org/).
