Executive Summary

Compute-intensive biological applications are heavily reliant on the availability of computing resources. Grid based HPC clusters and emerging Cloud computing clusters provide a large scale computing environment for scientific users. However, large scale biological application often involves various types of computational tasks which can benefit from different types of computing clusters. Therefore, a high level job scheduling environment which integrates the Grid style HPC clusters and the Cloud computing clusters and manages jobs accordingly based on the characteristics of the jobs is required.
