The EMBRACE project is a network of European partners providing services which integrate the major data resources and analysis software tools using web services and emerging grid technologies. Prototype services are available for the core data resources and the most commonly used tools for sequence analysis. Data access uses the WSDbFetch and BioMart services from the European Bioinformatics Institute. Software tool services use the SoapLab services, also from the European Bioinformatics Institute. The preferred client for these services is Taverna from the my Grid project. Subprojects are collecting and analyzing biological use cases, and maintaining a watch on emerging grid technology in Europe.
