One of the most significant issues of the computational biology is the multiple pattern matching for locating nucleotides and amino acid sequence patterns into biological databases. Sequential implementations for these processes have become inadequate, due to an increasing demand for more computational power. Graphic cards offer a high parallelism computational power improving the performance of applications. This paper evaluates the performance of the Wu-Manber algorithm implemented with the OpenCL framework, by presenting the running time of the experiments compared with the corresponding sequential time.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 11.4
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.8
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 5.0.35, AMD APP SDK 2.8

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
