Abstract: Comparative analysis of genomes allows the rich source of biological genome sequence data to be most efficiently exploited. However, the rate at which microbial genomes are being sequenced is increasing rapidly. Soon the volume of data will put comparative analyses beyond the capability of the computing resources of most individual laboratories. Grid technology promises to provide a scalable solution for analysing genomic data. Microbase is a Grid-based system to support comparative genomics applications. The project aims to use Grid technology to provide an environment that is both scalable, provides access to pre-computed datasets and is also able to permit the execution of user defined, remotely conceived computation.
