Reconfigurable Computing for Accelerating Protein Folding Simulations
Abstract. This paper presents a methodology for the design of a reconfigurable computing system applied to a complex problem in molecular Biology: the protein folding problem. An efficient hardware-based approach was devised to achieve a significant reduction of the search space of possible foldings. Several simulations were done to evaluate the performance of the system as well as the demand for FPGA's resources. Also a complete desktop-FPGA system was developed. This work is the base for future hardware implementations aimed at finding the optimal solution for protein folding problems using the 2D-HP model.
