Parallel computing in bioinformatics: a view from high-performance, heterogeneous, and cloud computing
- 17 Downloads
Bioinformatics allows and encourages the application of many different parallel computing approaches. This special issue brings together high-quality state-of-the-art contributions about parallel computing in bioinformatics, from different points of view or perspectives, that is, from high-performance, heterogeneous, and cloud computing. The special issue collects considerably extended and improved versions of the best papers, accepted and presented in PBio 2018 (6th International Workshop on Parallelism in Bioinformatics, and part of EuroMPI 2018). The domains and topics covered in these five papers are timely and important, and the authors have done an excellent job of presenting the material.
