Abstract

This paper presents a Web based portal, which enables intelligent processing of biological data in Grid environments. The deployed software aims at creation of tools for processing data from microarray experiments over the Hellenic Grid infrastructure. Emphasis is given on user interface and access issues, while the paper describes also the data parsing and parallelization of the microarray data processing. The description of the system is oriented to Grid developers and users, since it focuses on the customization and use of the microarray applications over the Grid. Apart from supporting the high performance and economical execution of microarray experiments, the proposed system endeavors to provide access to a distributed repository of experiments information and results.
