Accelerated microRNA-Precursor Detection Using the Smith-Waterman Algorithm on FPGAs

Abstract

During the last few years more and more functionalities of RNA have been discovered that were previously thought of being carried out by proteins alone. One of the most striking discoveries was the detection of microRNAs, a class of noncoding RNAs that play an important role in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Large-scale analyses are needed for the… (More)
