  • GPU Enabled Bioinformatics Applications

    In a bit of a debate with a colleague about how many (or, as I put it, how FEW) application codes are currently GPU-enabled in the wide application case considered "Bioinformatics". Of course, it probably depends on how broad one defines "Bioinformatics"...but when you look at the list of very commonly used applications that get regular coverage on SeqAnswers....I think VERY few are GPU capable.

    So, how many broadly used Bio apps do YOU know of out there? Please feel free to name as well as comment on if the GPU "enhancement" is significant or not...

    So, last time this was discussed on SeqAnswers appears to have been mid-2016, and the answers were as I would expect:
    Discussion of next-gen sequencing related bioinformatics: resources, algorithms, open source efforts, etc


    After a lot of digging, I'm still not seeing any mainstream software tools designed for Bioinformatics workloads that utilize GPU's, though there is some work to improve distributed parallel computing functionality as in the case of "HipMer: An Extreme-Scale De Novo Genome Assembler" for example.

    Just seems like the GPU architecture doesn't readily lend itself to the current algorithms and data sets perhaps?

      Reviving an old thread. With the advent of the RTX nVIDIA GPU units, and the considerable efforts of nVIDIA to get people into GPU computing; we're very seriously considering buying a workstation with GPU capacity. Here are the current "Official" list of bioinformatics apps (https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/data-ce...tions/catalog/).

      What are people's thought's on this new approach to GPU computing?

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
