Cloud-Coffee: implementation of a parallel consistency-based multiple alignment algorithm in the T-Coffee package and its benchmarking on the Amazon Elastic-Cloud

MetadataShow full item record
Summary: We present the first parallel implementation of the T-Coffee consistency-based multiple aligner. We benchmark it on the Amazon Elastic Cloud (EC2) and show that the parallelization procedure is reasonably effective. We also conclude that for a web server with moderate usage (10K hits/month) the cloud provides a cost-effective alternative to in-house deployment.

High Performance computing improvements on bioinformatics consistency-based multiple sequence alignment tools Orobitg Cortada, Miquel; Guirado Fernández, Fernando; Cores Prado, Fernando; Lladós Segura, Jordi; Notredame, Cedric (Elsevier, 2014-10-08)Multiple Sequence Alignment (MSA) is essential for a wide range of applications in Bioinformatics. Traditionally, the alignment accuracy was the main metric used to evaluate the goodness of MSA tools. However, with the ...
