Large-scale biological sequence assembly and alignment by using computing grid

Large-scale sequence assembly and alignment are fundamental parts of biological computing. However, most of the large-scale sequence assembly and alignment require intensive computing power and normally take very long time to complete. To speedup the assembly and alignment process, this paper parallelizes the Euler sequence assembly and pair-wise/multiple sequence assembly, two important sequence assembly methods, and takes advantage of Computing Grid which has a colossal computing capacity to meet the large-scale biological computing demand.
