Based on GPU computing, a fast computing using multi-GPU is proposed for the alignment of vast amounts of T-cell receptor (TCR) nucleotide sequences. Using CUDA-enabled Fermi GPU and CUDA toolkit 4.0 provided by NVIDIA, we design a faster and more effective sequence alignment process based on CPU and multi-GPU: CPU is responsible for logic control, GPU responsible for parallel computing. Inter-task parallel strategy is applied in the part of parallel computing, which not only bring high parallelism, but also make the alignment process not confined to a specific parallel alignment algorithm. Under the same hardware condition, the alignment computing of mouse TCR nucleotide sequences were carried out by multi-GPU computing, single-GPU computing and only-CPU computing respectively. The results show that multi-GPU computing has the best performance considering alignment efficiency and the cost. 漏 2012 IEEE.
