Name:Grid Bio Portal (GISELA)
Description:Grid Portal of Bioinformatics Applications
Abstract:The application consists on a Grid Portal in which different bioinformatics applications can be deployed. Different Grid services implement basic tools such as multiple alignments, Phylogenetics inference, etc, which run on a Grid infrastructure, along with more complex compound workflows that implement widely used analysis sequences.<BR/>The portal will provide authentication, load balancing, session management, workflow, user interface, reliability, fault tolerance, data management and accounting. This software layer will increase the productivity of software production cycle and will offer a uniform framework to host Grid services.<BR/>The portal will run on a computer provided of a Grid User Interface, acting as a bridge between the Web and the Grid sides. It makes use of myproxy servers and all the other global Grid Services (data catalogue, resource brokering, file transfer, etc.).
