Abstract

Drug design is a challenging and computationally intensive task. Chemists are often faced with handling huge amounts of data as well as with working with huge amounts of computational resources. This paper shows that using the BOINC system as a private, dedicated desktopgrid a community, like the EU CancerGrid chemist community, can easily set up its own high-end infrastructure based on available and inexpensive desktop computers. The CancerGrid Computing System described in the paper can easily be adapted for the needs of other user communities having similar infrastructure requirements.
