%X We describe an experiment which aims to reduce significantly
   the costs of running a particular large\-scale grid\-enabled
   application using commercial cloud computing resources. We
   incorporate three tactics into our experiment: improving the
   serial performance of each work unit, seeking the most
   cost\-effective computation cycles, and making use of an
   optimized resource manager and scheduler. The
   application selected for this work is a genetics association
   analysis and is representative of a common class of
   embarrassingly parallel problems.
