BACKGROUND Searching for similarities in protein and DNA databases has become a routine procedure in Molecular Biology. The Smith-Waterman algorithm has been available for more than 25 years. It is based on a dynamic programming approach that explores all the possible alignments between two sequences; as a result it returns the optimal local alignment.(More)
This paper presents a study of the efficiency in applying modern Graphics Processing Units in symmetric key cryptographic solutions. It describes both traditional style approaches based on the OpenGL graphics API and new ones based on the recent technology trends of major hardware vendors. It presents an efficient implementation of the Advanced Encryption(More)
SUMMARY Standard DNA alignment programs are inadequate to manage the data produced by new generation DNA sequencers. To answer this problem, we developed PASS with the objective of improving execution time and sensitivity when compared with other available programs. PASS performs fast gapped and ungapped alignments of short DNA sequences onto a reference(More)
