Thanks to the development of genetic engineering, various kinds of genomic information are being unveiled. Hence, now, it becomes feasible to study in molecular biology by analyzing the entire genomic information. On the other hand, the quantity of the genomic information stocked in database is increasing day after day. In order to process the whole information, we have to develop an effective method to deal with lots of data. It is indispensable not only to make an effective and rapid algorithm but also to use high-speed computer resource so as to analyze the biological information. For this purpose, as one of the most promised computing environments, the grid computing architecture has appeared recently. The European Data Grid (EDG) is one of the grid computing environments (Segal 2000). In this paper, at first, we propose an effective sequence analysis method to find out and evaluate unique sequences for primer design by extending the previously proposed method (Kurata 2002). Next, we describe how to implement this method upon the European Data Grid.
