Parallel computing is frequently used to speed up computationally expensive tasks in Bioinformatics. Herein, a parallel version of the multi-alignment program DIALIGN is introduced. We propose two ways of dividing the program into independent sub-routines that can be run on different processors: (a) pair-wise sequence alignments that are used as a first(More)
SUMMARY Searches for variable motifs such as protein-binding sites or promoter regions are more complex than the search for casual motifs. For example, in amino acid sequences comparing motifs alone mostly proves to be insufficient to detect regions that represent proteins with a special function, because the function depends on biochemical properties of(More)
Clusters of symmetric multiprocessor (SMP) nodes are one of the most important parallel architectures now and in the future. The architecture consists of shared-memory nodes with multiple processors and a fast interconnection network between the nodes. New programming models try to exploit this architecture by using threads in the nodes and using(More)
Hierarchically structured architectures are becoming more and more pervasive in the field of parallel and high performance computing. While memory hierarchies have been recognized for a long-time, only in the last years hierarchical parallel structures have gained importance, mainly as a result of the trend towards cluster architectures and high-performance(More)
Clusters of symmetric multiprocessor nodes (SMP clusters) are one of the most important parallel architectures at the moment. The architecture consists of sharedmemory nodes with multiple processors and a fast interconnection network between the nodes.

The character of knowledge-intense processes is that participants decide the next process activities on base of the present information and their expert knowledge. The decisions of these knowledge workers are in general non-deterministic. It is not possible to model these processes in advance and to automate them using a process engine of a BPM system.(More)
