    My Grid is an e-Science Grid project that aims to help biologists and bioinformaticians to perform workflow-based in silico experiments, and help them to automate the management of such workflows through personalisation, notification of change and publication of experiments. In this paper, we describe the architecture of my Grid and how it will be used by the scientist. We then show how my Grid can benefit from agents technologies. We have identified three key uses of agent technologies in my Grid: user agents, able to customize and personalise data, agent communication languages offering a generic and portable communication medium, and negotiation allowing multiple distributed entities to reach service level agreements. © 2003 IEEE.
