    The vision of e-Science is progressively being realized as diverse computational resources are being used to collect, store, process and integrate scientific data and to execute the scientific method in silico. The myGrid project, which operates in the bioinformatics domain, has so far delivered the basic middleware for second generation in silico biology, which previously was undertaken via adhoc integration of web based resources. The Semantic Web (SW) vision on the other hand is a promise to enable increased mechanization by giving information a well-defined meaning. In myGrid we have applied certain SW technologies for two activities, namely resource discovery and provenance. Here we discuss our experiences in these two cases. We believe that our findings on utility of SW technology to bioinformatics can be generalized to the larger context Life Sciences and even e-Science
