Building a GPU-Accelerated Short-Read Aligner for Bisulfite-Treated DNA Sequences
Abstract:

It is not always easy to accelerate a complex serial algorithm with CUDA parallelization. A case in point is that of aligning bisulfite-treated DNA (bsDNA) sequences to a reference genome. A simple CUDA adaptation of a CPU-based implementation can improve the speed of this particular kind of sequence alignment, but it's possible to achieve order-of-magnitude improvements in throughput by organizing the implementation so as to ensure that the most compute-intensive parts of the algorithm execute on GPU threads.
