Paper co-authored by Hasan Hassan and Onur Mutlu published in the Bioinformatics journal

The following paper has been published in the Bioinformatics journal: 

Mohammed Alser, Hasan Hassan, Hongyi Xin, Oguz Ergin, Onur Mutlu, and Can Alkan "GateKeeper: A New Hardware Architecture for Accelerating Pre-Alignment in DNA Short Read Mapping".

The paper is collaborative with Professor Mutlu’s co-advised PhD student Mohammed Alser and his co-advisor Can Alkan at Bilkent University. The paper proposes a novel FPGA-based accelerator for the analysis of genomes sequenced by next-generation genome sequencing technologies, which achieves one to two orders of magnitude speedup over existing genome pre-alignment techniques.
