GPU-Enhanced Minimap2 for Precise Long Read Alignment

EasyChair Preprint no. 10914

3 pagesDate: September 16, 2023


Minimap2 is a widely-used tool for long read alignment, known for its speed and sensitivity. However, the alignment of long reads to reference genomes can still be computationally intensive. In this article, we explore the optimization of Minimap2 for GPUs, enhancing its speed and precision. By harnessing the parallel processing capabilities of GPUs, researchers can achieve substantial performance improvements while maintaining alignment accuracy. Long-read sequencing technologies have transformed genomics, allowing for the study of complex genomes and structural variations with unprecedented detail. Minimap2 is a popular tool known for its efficiency in aligning long reads to reference genomes.
