DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0157338

[…] h as BLAST. GPU accelerated Smith-Waterman algorithms [–] and seed-and-extend algorithms for DNA sequences [, ] were several times faster than those of implementation for CPU with multiple CPU cores. SW#db [] is one of the GPU-based Smith-Waterman algorithms, and showed that when it is based on 1 GPU, it works 4- to 5-fold faster than does SSEARCH [], which is a CPU-based Smith-Waterman algorithm, […]
