Execution of a Bioinformatics Application in a Joint IRISGrid/EGEE Testbed
This paper describes the execution of a Bioinformatics application over a highly distributed and heterogeneous testbed. This testbed is composed of resources devoted to EGEE and IRISGrid projects and has been integrated by taking advantage of the modular, decentralized and “end-to-end” architecture of the Grid W ay framework. Results show the feasibility of building loosely-coupled Grid environments based only on Globus services, while obtaining non trivial levels of quality of service. Such approach allows a straightforward resource sharing as the resources are accessed by using de facto standard protocols and interfaces.
