Golden Helix Harnesses the Power of GPUs to Accelerate Genomic Analyses
Published: Oct 26, 2010
BOZEMAN, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Golden Helix, Inc., today announced the incorporation of technologies that will greatly accelerate genetic research. By enabling the company’s SNP & Variation Suite software to run on off-the-shelf video graphics cards, or GPUs, operations that took hours or days can now be completed in a fraction of the time – and without the need for expensive compute clusters or resorting to cloud-based computing. This novel ability will dramatically accelerate many forms of computationally expensive genetic analyses, including that of next generation sequencing data.
