The grid is a promising tool to resolve the crucial issue of software and data integration in biology. In this paper, we have reported on our experience in the deployment of bioinformatic grid applications within the framework of the DataGrid project. These applications inquired the potential impact of grids for CPU demanding algorithms and bioinformatics web portals and for the update and distribution of biological databases. Grid computing tests showed how resources sharing improves the current practice of bioinformatics. Reached performance demonstrated the interest of the grid tool
