A special-purpose computer for exploring similar biological sequences: Bioler-2 with multi-pipeline and multi-sequence architecture

Abstract

We developed a special-purpose computer for exploring similar biological sequences by Smith–Waterman method, Bioler-2 (BIOLogical sequence explorER). It can compute a complete similarity score between two biological sequences which have less than 10,000 characters. We integrated the system on two FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) chips, XC2V6000 (6M… (More)
