Assembling genomes on large-scale parallel computers
Proceedings 20th IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
Assembly of large genomes from tens of millions of short genomic fragments is computationally demanding requiring hundreds of gigabytes of memory and tens of thousands of CPU hours. The advent of high throughput sequencing technologies, new gene-enrichment sequencing strategies, and collective sequencing of environmental samples further exacerbate this situation. In this paper, we present the first massively parallel genome assembly framework. The unique features of our approach includedoi:10.1109/ipdps.2006.1639259 dblp:conf/ipps/KalyanaramanESA06 fatcat:yufjb6ql6bg6lmbv663oe2gipq
