PASQUAL (PArallel SeQUence AssembLer) is designed for shared memory parallelism, using OpenMP due to its good tradeoff between performance and programmer productivity. Shared memory parallelism has become mainstream with the widespread production of multicore commodity processors. For PASQUAL we follow the OLC approach and use a careful combination of tailored algorithms and data structures to obtain high-quality solutions.
