Pretty much any distro will do if you install the right packages. There is a list of most-commonly-used distributions here, also you can follow the Ubuntu Science - Biology guide.

OpenDiscovery looks promising. It seems to be based on RedHat - I wonder - why is there nothing based on Scientific Linux? –  Nils Apr 28 '12 at 19:49

Have a look at the SciTech Fedora Spin and the Scientific KDE Fedora Spin.
