About the Project

The reconfigurable computing paradigm, which exploits the flexibility and versatility of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA’s), has emerged as a powerful solution for speeding up time-critical algorithms.

This project will focus on the development of high-performance FPGA-based bioinformatics solutions for proteomics (protein identification and quantitation) and genomics (next-generation sequencing) or the development of FPGA solutions for real-time sensing, optimization and model based control.
