nVidia CUDA Bioinformatics: An Introduction

off

Introduction As most readers of this blog will know, bioinformatics has always been a data-heavy field of research. Many computational problems within bioinformatics can scale up to the sky, from protein folding to calculating homology in sequences. But the real motherload of repetitive data was unleashed on the bioinformatics community when Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) […]
