FPGA solution accelerates bioinformatics searching

Posted: 01 Dec 2009 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:FPGA? bioinformatics searching? FPGA data analysis?

This technical article presents an FPGA-based accelerated solution for DNA sequencing and dot plotting. It describes how multiple FPGA devices can be deployed to create a scalable cluster dedicated to the task of analyzing large amounts of data, and how this clustered hardware application can be connected to a software application for visualization and analysis.

It also discusses parallel FPGA optimizations and demonstrates how higher-level programming methods, using the C language, can speed the development of this and other types of highly parallel algorithms.
