This study uses an FPGA to perform high-speed DNA sequence matching as an alternative to using general purpose computer CPUs. The FPGA is programmed using the Verilog HDL and interfaced using a graphical user interface programmed in JAVA. Design overviews and details for a small scale design are given as well as plans for larger scale expansion. Encouraging results of the small scale model currently in production are also provided. Results of a successful match and no match are shown.
