Bioinformatics experiments can be modelled as workflows whereby the order of each computational resource used has been pre-defined. Workflows in the myGrid project are composed and enacted using the Taverna workflow system. We have compared the use of Taverna with classical approaches for performing bioinformatics experiments in the genetic analysis of Graves’ disease. Both classical and myGrid methodologies identified I kappa B-epsilon as a candidate gene involved in Graves’ disease, demonstrating that myGrid is capable of producing the same results as the classical bioinformatics approach.
