Epistasis detection holds great promise for the prevention and treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and breast cancer. INESC-ID researchers, Aleksander Ilic and Rafael Torres Campos are collaborating with other researchers and developers across Portugal through the HiPErBio project to advance the precision and efficiency of epistasis detection, using Intel® DevCloud, Intel® CPUs and GPUs, such as the Intel® Iris® Xe MAX GPU. Rafael shares his experiences in porting bioinformatics applications from OpenCL™ platform to DPC++ to target multiple hardware architectures, the speedups he achieved, and some surprises along the way.
