The large number of protein sequences, provided by genomic projects at an increasing pace, constitutes a challenge for large scale computational studies of protein structure and thermodynamics. Grid technology is very suitable to face this challenge, since it provides a way to access the resources needed in compute and data intensive applications. In this work, we concentrate on the grid-aware implementation of a protein structure prediction algorithm.
