A Comparison of the BioSCAN Algorithm on Multiple Architectures
This paper compares the performance characteristics of the BioSCAN biological sequence matching algorithm on several different computer architectures. The architectures examined are a conventional RISC general purpose uni-processor, a vector oriented "supercomputer", and a Single Instruction Multi Data (simd) massively parallel computer. These architectures are represented by the following hardware platforms: a Sun 490 RISC, a Convex 240, and a MasPar MP-1. The performance of these three platforms is compared with that of the custom built BioSCAN hardware. 2 Background 2.1 The BioSCAN Project
