In this paper, we describe an analysis tool based on the statistical environment R, GridR, which allows using the collection of methodologies available as R packages in a grid environment. It provides the user with transparent and seamless access to large-scale distributed computational services and data repositories within the secure and reliable framework of a grid system. The aim of GridR, which was initiated in the context of the EU project Advancing Clinico-Genomics Trials on Cancer (ACGT), is to provide a powerful framework for the analysis of clinico-genomic trials involving large amount of data (e.g. microarray-based clinical trials). As a proof of the concept, an example of microarray-based analysis taken from the literature was reproduced using GridR.
