Researchers of various disciplines ranging from Life Sciences and Astronomy to Computational Chemistry, create and use scientific applications producing large amount of complex data relying heavily on compute-intensive modelling, simulation and analysis. Cloud Computing has reached a maturity state and high level of popularity that various Cloud services have become a part of our lives. The goal of this research is to apply this new technology to support and ease the execution of scientific applications and manage the produced user data in a convenient way, accessible from different places and devices. In this paper a biochemical application is examined as a use case for exemplifying our approach. We provide a general way for porting this biochemical application to an interoperable, heterogeneous environment consisting of Infrastructure and Personal (i.e. storage) Clouds. Our approach stores the application data in Personal Clouds and produce this data in Infrastructure Clouds in an autonomous way. Finally, we evaluate the ported application by using Ubuntu One, Dropbox, OpenNebula and Amazon. Our results show that users can benefit from this approach, and utilize data and infrastructure Cloud services in a transparent and efficient way.
