Since the problems in bioinformatics are related to massive computing and massive data. In recent years, due to distributed computing is gaining recognition. The task originally requiring high computing power does not only rely on supercomputer. Distributed computing used off-the-shelf PC with high speed network can offer low cost and high performance computing power to handle the task. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to implement a complete distributed computing platform based on peer-to-peer file sharing technology. The platform integrated scheduling, load balancing, file sharing, maintenance of data integrity, and user-friendly interface etc. functions. Through the platform can assist bioinformaticists in massive computing and massive data problems. Besides, the platform is easier use, more reliable, and more helpful than others for researchers to conduct bioinformatics research.
