PBB: A Parallel Bioinformatics Benchmark Suite for Shared Memory Multiprocessors

By Wenguang Chen and Chuntao Hong


Bioinformatics applications are widely used in life science and medicine industry where the demand on high performance computing system is increasing rapidly. It is very important to understand the characteristics of bioinformatics applications for both end-users and computer system designers. With the advent of mutlticore processors, it is also critical to know how well can multicore processors speedup bioinformatics applications. Although some bioinformatics benchmarks have been proposed, they cover limited application domains and most of them are serial codes. As a result, the analysis based on these benchmarks needs further examination with broader range of bioinformatics applications and it is indispensable to have a parallel bioinformatics benchmark set for shared memory multi-processors
