Heuristic scheduling schemes for the genomic appli cation InterProScan are implemented, and these schedul ing schemes are evaluated on OBIGrid (Open Bioinformat ics Grid), which is an experimental Grid for bioinformatics being developed by Japan Committees. This paper presents the implementation details of the scheduling schemes and compares their mean response times. The mean response time of an Adaptive scheme, which uses the information of the application program and the processor, is smaller than that of other schemes for all load levels.
