The explosion of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data with over one billion reads per day poses a great challenge to the capability of current computing systems. In this paper, we proposed a CPU-FPGA heterogeneous architecture for accelerating a short reads mapping algorithm, which was built upon the concept of hash-index. In particular, by extracting and mapping the most time-consuming and basic...
