Hi Franco,

I recall that there are some Hadoop-Blast researches/projects.  For examples,

Subject: Hadoop for Bioinformatics

Good day everyone!

First, I want to congratulate the group for this wonderful project. It did
open up new ideas and solutions in computing and technology-wise. I'm
excited to learn more about it and discover possibilities using Hadoop and
its components. 

Well I just want to ask this with regards to my study. Currently I'm
studying my PhD course in Bioinformatics, and my question is that can you
give me a (rough) idea if it's possible to use Hadoop cluster in achieving a
DNA sequence alignment? My basic idea for this goes something like a string
search out of a huge data files stored in HDFS, and the application uses
MapReduce in searching and computing. As the Hadoop paradigm impies, it
doesn't serve well in interactive applications, and I think this kind of
searching is a "write-once, read-many" application.

I hope you don't mind my question. And it'll be great hearing your comments
or suggestions about this.

Thanks and more power!
