In this paper, we describe a Problem Solving Environment (PSE) tool called BioGrid Application Toolkit and its architecture over a grid environment. BioGrid Application Toolkit is a general purpose grid access tool that provides a parallel and distributed programming environment; it provides an efficient web-based user interface that allows users to develop, run and visualize parallel/distributed applications running on heterogeneous computing resources connected by networks. BioGrid Application Toolkit is easy to use and has two execution models: streaming and data parallel mode. The system transparently schedules the submitted jobs and gives user feedback on the job status. The relevant components for the success of this parallel processing system will focus in how effective the scheduler and interface is. We also discuss some of the reasons for our design, present the initial results and discuss issues that we consider relevant for future research.
