Pico Computing Demonstrates Bioinformatics Acceleration at SC 2011

Pico's SC5 FPGA cluster reduces short read sequencing from 6 1/2 hours to just one minute
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 09, 2011
Pico Computing will be demonstrating an FPGA implementation of BFAST resulting in a 350X acceleration over a software-only implementation running on two quad core Intel Xeon processors. The 350X acceleration was achieved using 8 Pico M-503 FPGA modules in their SC5 SuperCluster chassis. The BFAST algorithm is primarily used in short read genome mapping.
