FPGA-based Hardware Accelerator for Sequence Alignment by Genetic Algorithm, An
The study of DNA, RNA and protein sequences leads to important biological information regarding structural, functional and evolutionary relationships between species. In bioinformatics, the comparison of sequences enables the identification of significant divergences between organisms resulting from possible mutations or even the presence of a disease. Multiple sequence alignment is the name given to the techniques used to align three or more sequences with the purpose of identifying regions of similarity with significant biological meaning. There exist numerous multiple sequence alignment ...
