Processing-in-memory architectures and programming libraries for bioinformatics algorithms

Project description

Innovative computing algorithms based on processing-in-memory technology

High-throughput sequencing (HTS) of DNA and RNA is an indispensable part of the research, development and healthcare system. Personal genome sequencing is used in preventive and personalised medicine; HTS technologies can identify rare disease genetic mutations, cancer subtypes, and infections and antibiotic resistance. There is a need for fast, energy- and cost-efficient technologies for genomics research – without the involvement of data centres and cloud platforms. The EU-funded BioPIM project aims to develop powerful edge computing based on emerging processing-in-memory (PIM) technologies. The project will focus on designing bioinformatics algorithms and data structures and several types of PIM architectures to achieve high cost, energy and time efficiency.
