In recent years, simulation using computer systems has been of increasing importance in the life sciences. We have developed a system called 'Rokky-G' that facilitates a protein structure prediction strategy called 'Rokky' on Grid systems. Rokky-G provides the framework of protein structure prediction on the Grid. In this paper we discuss the architecture of Rokky-G and implementation issues identified in order to obtain highly reliable results.
