ANDY (seArch coordination aND analYsis) is a set of Perl programs and modules for easily running large biological database searches, and similar applications, over the nodes of a Linux/Unix computer cluster in order to achieve speedup through parallelization. Users specify their cluster runs through a straightforward XML configuration file, in which they specify a template for the pipeline or sequence of commands they want to run on the nodes, as well as the locations and types of data sources for the command lines and other information.
