[Bioclusters] Parallel assembling of a shotgun genome

We are a genomic research center in México and we will be initiating the
shotgun sequence of a large genome. Currently we do our bioinformatics
in a 32 processor cluster, but we assemble (for example ESTs sequences)
using Phrap and/or CAP3.
The question is,
Can I parallelize the assembling of a shotgun sequencing project to use
the power of a cluster?

Thanks in advance,
