The science of bioinformatics provides researchers with the tools necessary to unravel the mysteries of life and evolution, discover cures for disease, and control the evolution of living organisms. To assist researchers in managing the growing data processing and management demands associated with bioinformatics, we have created a production system that draws upon Grid based technologies to control several aspects of the process. We briefly discuss system architecture, results, and future directions of the project.
