Executive Summary

Advances in sequencing technologies have revolutionized the field of genomics by providing cost effective and high throughput solutions. In this paper, the authors develop a parallel sequence assembler implemented on general purpose Graphic Processor Units (GPUs). The authors' work was largely motivated by a growing need in the genomic community for sequence assemblers and increasing use of GPUs for general purpose computing applications. They investigated the implementation challenges, and possible solutions for a data parallel approach for sequence assembly.
