The amount of biological information is exponentially increasing, and is exceeding the rate at which computer software can facilitate making sense of the data. Our intention is to enable the use of sensitive algorithms in computational biology exploiting in hardware the inherent parallelism that dynamic programming offers. In this work besides the general research methodology and the objectives related to this task, we present our architecture for particular problem of DNA and protein sequence alignment The results clearly outperform those published in the literature.
