GPU-BLAST 1.1 – Sequence Alignment with GPUs

GPU-BLAST 1.1

:: DESCRIPTION

GPU-BLAST is an accelerated version of the popular NCBI-BLAST using a general-purpose graphics processing unit (GPU). The implementation is based on the source code of NCBI-BLAST, thus maintaining the same input and output interface while producing identical results. In comparison to the sequential NCBI-BLAST, the speedups achieved by GPU-BLAST range mostly between 3 and 4.
