Add me to the list of interested parties to that subject. I would like 
to know how to write an app that would do these three steps:

-Splitting a sequence in multiples of, let say, 100 nucleotides;
-Send each of them to a node for BLASTing;
-Reassemble the different results into a single report for the users.

Any web links that would help us in our quest?
