The article makes an in depth analysis of the key aspects that carry significant weight when deciding to parallelize a certain part of an application: the analysis phase of the application that is about to be parallelized; the amount of time involved to achieve the implementation; the feasibility of parallelizing the source code; situations when one should aim for central processing units optimization techniques that yield better performance on sequential source code rather than parallelizing the whole algorithm.

After background chapters on important algorithms, general-purpose graphic processors, and massively threaded programming and reconfigurable computing with field-programmable gate arrays, researchers in the field present recent approaches to parallelize bioinformatics applications on a variety of parallel architectures, including pairwise and multiple sequence alignment, the basic local alignment search tool, motif finding, pattern matching, sequence assembly, hidden Markov models, proteomics, and evolutionary tree reconstruction.
