Genome fragment assembly has long been a time and computation intensive problem in the field of bioinformatics. Many parallel assemblers have been proposed to accelerate the process but there hasn't been any effective approach proposed for GPUs. Also with the increasing power of GPUs, applications from various research fields are being parallelized to take(More)
Content based page sharing techniques improve memory efficiency in virtualized systems by identifying and merging identical pages. Kernel Same-page Merging (KSM), a Linux kernel utility for page sharing, sequentially scans memory pages of virtual machines to deduplicate pages. Sequential scanning of pages has several undesirable side effects---wasted CPU(More)
The genome assembly problem involves constructing the complete genome sequence from the reads generated by the sequencers. The Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms produce a large number of short reads at a very low cost. Many assemblers have been developed to work with NGS reads. The assembly process is computation intensive and also requires a large(More)
