In this paper, we give a parallel algorithm solving the sequence alignment problem on a LARPBS, one of the recently proposed parallel model based on optical bus. The complexity of our algorithm solving the sequence alignment problem is O(m) using n processors (where m and n are respectively the sizes of the shortest and the longest sequences).
