Abstract

Biochemical simulations including whole-cell models require high performance computing systems. Reconfigurable systems are expected to be an alternative solution for conventional methods by PC clusters or vector computers. This paper shows the implementation of a stochastic biochemical simulation algorithm called Next Reaction Method for Virtex-II PRO, As the result of benchmarking with a small reaction system, the FPGA-based simulator outperforms the software implementation on Xeon 2.40GHz by 17.1 times.
