The BioDA project is investigating how Bioinformatics Grids, a data and compute intensive domain, could benefit from using a standard framework, such as OGSA-DAI, to manage access and integration of distributed heterogeneous data resources. In this paper, we outline the common data access and integration requirements from the bioinformatics community. We then highlight some specific issues encountered while designing an OGSA-DAI exemplar application for Biodiversity World, a Biodiversity Grid that specialises in extracting knowledge from correlating a plethora of distributed heterogeneous data sources accessible via the Web in the study of biodiversity patterns
