From Celoxica today
Celoxica a leading provider of FPGA based High Performance Computing solutions, announces the successful implementation of data analysis acceleration in the life sciences environment. Genetic analysis is a fundamental process in modern drug discovery and development but places great demands on data processing. Working with a respected US Life Sciences company, Celoxica was able to accelerate the client’s gene sequencing algorithm by a factor of 20, significantly reducing this “bottleneck”. The application of Celoxica’s technology could have major benefits in the speed and cost of drug development.
