Hi --

A small number of Bioconductor work flows have been established as
caGrid analytic services; these are discoverable on the caGrid portal,


as those services that are hosted at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center here in Seattle.

Documentation is available at


under '02 Bioconductor CaGrid Services'. The functionality provided by
the services is documented in the Service Documentation archive; the
Installation Guide provides instruction on establishing your own instances.

The RWebServices package


has a vignette on enabling web services on additional packages,
including how these are combined with the caGrid introduce
infrastructure, so that it is not impossible to create custom caGrid

The code for the services is in gforge,


Please let me know if you'd like further assistance.
