We would like to compare regular NCBI Web Blast on a 22-node Dell 
1750 ROCKS cluster with a web-enabled MPIBLAST. The potential utility 
is that MPIBLAST will have a faster turnaround time for interactive 
web users under low cluster load.

The 1.20 version of MPIBLAST comes with the script WWWBlastWrap.pl to 
modify the NCBI wwwBlast and submit an MPIBLAST request from the web 
page to an openPBS queue. Our cluster is using Grid Engine as its 
scheduler. Has anyone modified this script to allow the submission 
via web page of MPIBLAST jobs to the Parallel Environment of SGE? We 
are currently using MPIBLAST via command line only, with Joe 
Landman's sge_mpiblast script.
