Hi Michael.

As Joe has done, I would point you to Pise, perhaps the best known Web 
interface for bioinformatic applications.  And I will add BioMOBY to 
that (http://www.biomoby.org/), which is more infrastructure-related. 
Catherine Letondal is involved in both projects, BTW.

I'll also mention my own project, since it matches your description. 
Piper (http://bioinformatics.org/piper/) began back in 1998 with a lot 
of the same goals as BioMOBY and MyGrid.  I gave a presentation about it 
at BOSC 2000.  The original concept also very closely matches that of 
SciCraft (http://www.scicraft.org/), Taverna 
(http://taverna.sourceforge.net/) (part of MyGrid) and the commercial 
application VIBE, from Incogen.  But, these are native desktop 
applications.  Scaled-back goals will make the new Piper (to be renamed 
"Pipet") a Web-based system.  Please see the website for more information.
