Abstract: The development of affordable, high-throughput sequencing technology has led to a flood of publicly available bacterial genome-sequence data. The availability of multiple genome sequences presents both an opportunity and a challenge for microbiologists, and new computational approaches are needed to extract the knowledge that is required to address specific biological problems and to analyse genomic data. The field of e-Science is maturing, and Grid-based technologies can help address this challenge.
