Abstract
The availability of easily programmable manycore CPUs and GPUs has motivated investigations into how to best exploit their tremendous computational power for scientific computing. Here we demonstrate how a systems biology application—detection and tracking of white blood cells in video microscopy—can be accelerated by 200x using a CUDA-capable GPU. Because the algorithms and implementation challenges are common to a wide range of applications, we discuss general techniques that allow programmers to make efficient use of a manycore GPU.
