Speaking as a bio-IT type, SGE aka "Grid Engine" is *extremely* well  
suited for life science workflow requirements and tends to be the  
dominating distributed resource management product I see across  
biotech/pharma/academic/government installations. Running in second  
place is Platform LSF and there are a scattering of PBS/Torque/Condor  
sites rounding out third place.

I'd encourage Indrajit to check out both grid engine as well as the  
bioclusters mailing list if the cluster is going to be used for  
informatics work.
