Abstract / Description of output

A timeline is presented which shows the stages involved in converting a bioinformatics software application from a set of standalone algorithms through to a simple web based tool then to a web based portal harnessing grid technologies (GridQTL) and on to its latest inception as a cloud based bioinformatics web tool (CloudQTL). The nature of the software is discussed together with a description of its development at various stages and the resulting successful increase in the user base. A discussion is then made detailing the latest idea to achieve a paid for service using cloud technologies.
