Architectural optimizations for high performance and energy efficient Smith-Waterman implementation on FPGAs using OpenCL


Smith-Waterman is a dynamic programming algorithm that plays a key role in the modern genomics pipeline as it is guaranteed to find the optimal local alignment between two strings of data. The state of the art presents many hardware acceleration solutions that have been implemented in order to exploit the high degree of parallelism available in this… (More)
