Multithreaded FPGA acceleration of DNA sequence mapping


In bioinformatics, short read alignment is a computationally intensive operation that involves matching millions of short strings (called reads) against a reference genome. At the time of writing, a representative run requires to match tens of millions of reads of length of about 100 symbols against a genome that can consists of a few billion characters… (More)
