is a bioinformatics software for Smith-Waterman protein database searches that takes advantage of the massively parallel CUDA architecture of NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to perform sequence searches 10x-50x faster than NCBI BLAST. In this algorithm, we deeply explore the SIMT (Single Instruction, Multiple Thread) and virtualized SIMD (Single Instruction, Multiple Data) abstractions to achieve fast speed.
