Chinook: a peer-to-peer bioinformatics system for sharing various bioinformatics utilities and CPU resources across the Internet.
We have created an open-source peer-to-peer system for bioinformatics
analysis. Our system enables researchers across the globe to freely access
state-of-the-art algorithms and computational resources. Algorithms are
found and new jobs are submitted to remote servers through either Bioperl
scripting or a sophisticated Java-based user interface. Furthermore, this
system has been designed to provide support to applications that require
access to a diverse range of bioinformatics functionality. Algorithm
support using this system has been or is being integrated into the Sockeye,
OrthoSeq, and Pegasys applications.
