In the business world, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) has recently gained popularity as a new approach to integrate business applications. In a similar way, scientific workflows can accomplish the automation of large-scale e-Science applications. However, the use of workflows in scientific environments differs from that in business environments.(More)
Open Source Software (OSS) for e-Science should make reference to the paradigm of a distributed surrounding over a multi system mix of Web Services and Grid technologies, allowing data exchanging through services, according to standards in the area of the Grid and of Service Oriented Computing (SOC). In fact, biologists, medical doctors, and scientists are(More)
Scientific workflows may be deployed on heterogeneous distributed environments, including Grid resources whose access is not straightforward when it is non compliant with the specific Grid middleware. This paper addresses this complexity and investigates the feasibility of a service oriented approach that takes advantage of the standardized resource access(More)
There are many sophisticated environments that allow creating and managing scientific workflows, whereas the workflow itself is provided as a service. Scientific Grids handle large amounts of data and deal with sharing resources, but the implementation of service-based applications that use scientific infrastructures still remains a challenging task, due to(More)
We present an on-line database of all-atom force-field parameters and molecular properties of compounds with antimicrobial activity (mostly antibiotics and some beta-lactamase inhibitors). For each compound, we provide the General Amber Force Field parameters for the major species at physiological pH, together with an analysis of properties of interest as(More)
