BioBoost Accelerated HMMer for Mac OS X

updated 06:30 pm EDT, Mon June 11, 2007

BioBoost Accelerated HMMer

Progeniq has announced a Universal version of its BioBoost Accelerated HMMer application for Mac OS X, which provides hardware accelerated processing for Hidden Markov models (HMMs) -- generally used for protein and DNA sequence analysis. The new release uses Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology, allowing the processor to 'rewire' itself on the fly according to the application that needs to be accelerated. Prices start from $8000

"Progeniq has had very strong demand from Mac users over the past year since launching the BioBoost v3.0 for Mac OS X Universal last year at WWDC 2006", said Progeniq's Chief Executive Officer, Darran Nathan. "This year, we're thrilled to introduce the new HMMer BioBoost accelerated application for the Mac. This will no doubt expand the value of the BioBoost to the Mac community even further."

The BioBoost Accelerated HMMer is available for immediate shipment and requires Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
