The coming of the e-science era provides more opportunities to improve the work of scientists by integrating sensors, resources, and services in GRID and Internet environments. We can expect much more improvement in scientists' work if they are supported by an appropriate tool. In this paper, we propose an e-science workbench that helps scientists design and perform their e-science experiments on the GRID or internet environments without the support of programmers. Since the e-science workbench may contain many modules and functions, we adopt a layered architecture in constructing the system. In order to convince potential users of the effectiveness of using the e-science workbench, we developed two domain specific e-Science workbenches. One is a health workbench and the other is a bio workbench. We observed that we could build the u-health and bio workbenches very systematically due to the underlying middle and bottom e-science workbench layers.
