Today's emerging architectures have higher levels of parallelism incorporated within a processor. They require efficient strategies to extract the performance they have to offer. In our work, we develop architecture-aware parallel strategies to perform various kinds of pairwise computations - pairwise genomic alignments, and scheduling large number of general pairwise computations with applications to computational systems biology and materials science. We present our schemes in the context of the IBM Cell BE, an example of a heterogeneous multicore, but are nevertheless applicable to any similar architecture, as well as general multicores with our strategies being cache-aware.
