Parallelizing the blast applications on a
network of Dec Alpha workstations

The goal of this project, is to set up a service for blast requests
on a network of Dec Alpha workstations. Blast (Basic Local Alignment
Search Tool) is a family of programs used in genetics research,
which try to find similarities between a given sequence of amino
acids or nucleotides, and a database containing proteins or DNAs.
The reason to do this on a distributed environment, is, to exploit
effectively the computing power of a cluster of Dec Alpha
workstations at the Computer Science Department at EPFL and at the
same time, provide a usefull service to the research community.
