Combining local and grid resources in scientific workflows (for Bioinformatics)
2009 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
We examine some issues that arise when using both local and Gridresources in scientific workflows. Our previous work addresses and illustratesthe benefits of a light-weight and generic workflow engine that manages andoptimizes Grid resource usage. Extending on this effort, we hereillustrate how a client tool for bioinformatics applications employs the engine tointerface with Grid resources. We also explore how to define data flowsthat transparently integrates local and Grid subworkflows. In addition, the benefits of parameter sweep workflows are examined and a means for describing this type of workflows in an abstract and concise manner is introduced. Finally, the above mechanisms are employed to perform an orthology detection analysis.
