Protein-protein Interaction Prediction using Variable Length Patterns with GPU


Objectives: To design a new framework to efficiently parallelize the steps of VLASPD algorithm using a hybridized apriori and fp-growth on GPU; to implement the existing and proposed framework in CUDA;to improve the performance factors like computational time, memory and CPU utilization.Methods/Statistical Analysis: This paper proposes the acceleration of Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) prediction on Graphics Processing Units(GPUs). A GPU can provide more processing cores and computational power in the same cost as a CPU.Findings: The frequently occurring patterns in the protein sequences can be used for PPIs prediction.The moving of the approaches from fixed length to variable length lead to computational complexity but also is found to be advantageous.Applications/Improvements:Sequence biology is since being researched by various computer engineers, the GPUs can be employed for predicting various sequence interactions like DNA-Proteins, etc. Since the GPU runs the parallel code efficiently, the methodology can be further improved if efficiently parallelized.

Keywords: Parallel VLASPD, Protein Interaction Prediction, Protein Sequences, Variable Length Patterns
