The main objectives of this project/task is the hardware implementation of an algorithm for biological sequence alignment (DNA, RNA or amino acids).
A dedicate architecture based on the SideWorks template should be developed. This architecture should be special tailored to the most intensive tasks of the select alignment algorithm. The remaining and less intensive tasks of the sequence alignment algorithm should be executed on the FireWorks embedded processor.
