New paper published in PaCT 2019’s proceedings

The PaCT conference (Parallel Computing Technologies) is a biennial event focused on the new developments and trends in parallel computing technologies. We presented some papers in the previous editions, mainly focusing on GPU-powered (biochemical) simulation [1], [2], [3]. This year we submitted a manuscript focused on something completely different, that is, the GPU-powered automatic extraction …

GenHap, a novel evolutionary approach for haplotyping, published on BMC Bioinformatics

GenHap is a novel evolutionary method to solve the haplotyping problem. basically subdivides the data into multiple independent combinatorial subproblems, each solved using a separate genetic algorithm. Then a recombination step fuses the solutions of subproblems into a final complete haplotype. GenHap also natively distributes the calculations over multiple cores by means of MPI, reducing …

New paper published on Bioinformatics

A couple of years ago, we started a collaboration with the IEO (Istituto Europeo di Oncologia). Prof. Pelicci and his staff investigate Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), one of the most common hematological malignancies, characterized by high relapse and mortality rates. The guys at IEO are wonderful, brilliant, I learned a lot in these months and …
