Sequence alignment and its many variants are a fundamental tool in computational biology. There is considerable recent interest in using the cell broadband engine, a heterogenous multi-core chip that provides high performance, for biological applications. However, work so far has been limited to computing optimal alignment scores using quadratic space under the basic global/local alignment algorithm. In this paper, we present a comprehensive study of developing sequence alignment algorithms on… CONTINUE READING
