Abstract

Biological sequence alignment algorithms work by identifying the degree of similarity between a newly discovered biological sequence with already known sequences. Exponential growth in the database and query sizes make pure softwarebased solutions inefficient in finding a solution within the time constraints. This calls for hardware acceleration-based solutions such as those based on field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). In this work we present the design and implementation of the popular BLAST algorithm for nucleotide sequence alignment, called HBLast, targeting FPGA-based reconfigurable platforms.
