  abstract =     "Genetic algorithms are a general problem-solving
                 technique that has been widely used in computational
                 biology. In this paper, we present a framework to map
                 hierarchical parallel genetic algorithms for protein
                 folding problems onto computational grids. By using
                 this framework, the two level communication parts of
                 hierarchical parallel genetic algorithms are separated.
                 Thus both parts of the algorithm can evolve
                 independently. This permits users to experiment with
                 alternative communication models on different levels
                 conveniently. The underlying programming techniques are
                 based on generic programming, a programming technique
                 suited for the generic representation of abstract
                 concepts. This allows the framework to be built in a
                 generic way at application level and thus provides good
                 extensibility and flexibility. Experiments show that it
                 can lead to significant runtime savings on PC clusters
                 and computational grids.",
