We'll disscuss how GPUs are playing a central role in making advances in Ion Torrent's targeted sequencing workflow and talk about the S5 DNA sequencer from Ion Torrent that is enabling democratization of sequencing market and accelerating research in precision medicine at a breathtaking pace with the help of GPUs. We'll highlight our work in liquid biopsy and non-invasive prenatal testing and how the breadth in technology offerings in semiconductor chips gives us the scale of sequencing from small panels to exomes. We'll discuss our analysis pipeline and the latest and greatest in algorithm development and acceleration on GPUs as well as our experiences ranging from Fermi to Pascal GPU architectures.
Learn how GPUs are enabling whole genome sequencing by accelerating primary data analysis pipeline of benchtop Ion Proton sequencer. Leveraging the compute power of GPUs to process the high-throughput data generated by this sequencer for a fast, scalable and cost-effective desktop compute solution to democratize DNA sequencing and accelerate the path towards personalized medicine. In this talk, the implementation of data fitting algorithms on the GPU and a streaming execution model to overlap data transfer and kernel execution for this high throughput system will be dicussed. Explained will be how changing the algorithms to suit the GPU compute model while still maintaining quality of the results.
