Accelerating Bioinformatics Searching and Dot Plotting Using a Scalable FPGA Cluster
White Paper Jan 23, 2012
Hardware accelerated platform enables fast analysis of DNA sequences.
This white paper presents an FPGA-based accelerated solution for DNA sequencing and dot plotting. It describes how multiple FPGA devices can be deployed to create a scalable cluster dedicated to the task of analyzing large amounts of data, and how this clustered hardware application can be connected to a software application for visualization and analysis.
Also discussed, parallel FPGA optimizations, and how higher-level programming methods, using the C language, can speed the development of this and other types of highly parallel algorithms.

How to Identify Low-Abundance Modified Peptides with Proteomics Mass SpectrometryWhite Paper
We present a new simplicity-focused analytics methodology, called Sorcerer Score™ that allows low-abundance, modified peptides (LAMPs) to be rigorously identified within a hypothesis-driven framework based on high-accuracy precursor and fragment mass data. Accurate peptide ID is fundamental to accurate protein quantitation and post-translational modification (PTM) analysis.READ MORE
