The Genome Analysis Center Selects Convey to Support Next-Generation Sequencing
Date:1/29/2013

e pairs classic Intel® x86 microprocessors with a coprocessor comprised of FPGAs. Particular algorithms—BWA-based alignment, for example—are optimized and translated into code that’s loadable onto the coprocessor at runtime.

“We’re pleased to be working with BBSRC and TGAC in support of their mission to advance bioscience,” said Dr. George Vacek, Director of Convey Computer’s Life Sciences business unit. “It’s increasingly clear more than one HPC approach is needed to efficiently tackle the full scope of genomics research. Hybrid-core computing has a major role to play, because it accelerates many key bioinformatics applications in an easy to use and economical way.”

About Convey Computer Corporation
Based in Richardson, Texas, Convey Computer breaks power, performance and programmability barriers with the world’s first hybrid-core computer—a system that marries the low cost and simple programming model of a commodity system with the performance of a customized hardware architecture. Using the Convey hybrid-core systems, customers worldwide in industries such as life sciences, research, advanced analytics, and the government/defense are enjoying increased application performance and lower costs of ownership. http://www.conveycomputer.com

(1) Burrows-Wheeler Aligner (BWA) is an efficient program that aligns relatively short nucleotide sequences against a long reference sequence such as the human genome.
