Description:Job Submission Tool
Abstract:JST is a grid tool developed ad used inside the bioinformatics community, particularly useful to manage the submission to the EGEE grid of a large number of jobs in all case where a challenging problem can be subdivided in a number, that can be quite large, of independent elementary tasks. The tool takes care of the submission to the grid of all of jobs required by a given application, their monitoring and bookkeeping. Once initialized for a given application, JST takes care of executing on the grid all of the elementary tasks, eventually resubmitting the failed ones, hiding to the user the complexity of operating in a grid environment. The tools has been used in conjunction with several bioinformatics applications such as: CSTMiner, GAF, MrBayes, Aspic, BLAST, FT-COMAR, PAML, EMBOSS, MAFFT, BayeSSC .
