Here are a few more:

A sequence database searching program. You give it a query sequence
and it searches a database for similar sequences.

It builds trees of how sequences are related... (don't know how widly
used it is..). It runs on top of PVM.

It a Perl toolkit designed for bioinformatics. I not targeted at
clusters but it could give you a picture of some possible

Here a link to the proceedings of BOSC (Bioinformatics Open Source
Conference) 2002:
You can proberbly find some funs things to look at there...
