Is grid computing [1] in the field of bioinformatics more than a buzzword?

Contents

Biomolecular simulations

The aim of the BioSimGrid project [2] is to make the results of large-scale computer simulations of biomolecules more accessible to the biological community.

Folding@Home Distributed Computing

Folding@Home is a distributed computing project in which people all over the world download and run software on their PC's to create one of the largest supercomputers that has ever been used to predict protein folding.

MyGrid

MyGrid aims to use the power of grid computing to "provide middleware layers that make it appropriate for the immediate needs of bioinformatics".
