Table 1 Processing benchmarks for GenTHREADER versus mGenTHREADER. The processing time required for the sequence-profile method GenTHREADER is compared to the profile-profile version of mGenTHREADER. The data was collected by running both methods on sequences from the Human proteome using 148 identical CPUs (1.3 GHz Pentium IIIs from the cs.ucl.ac.uk domain) over a period of 10 hours. The throughput was measured as the mean number of sequences with structural annotations per hour.

From: High throughput profile-profile based fold recognition for the entire human proteome

  GenTHREADER mGenTHREADER
Mean sequences per hour on 148 identical CPUs 1236 230
Mean sequences per hour on 1 CPU 8.35 1.55
Mean time for 1 Human sequence on 1 CPU (min) 7.18 38.61
Estimated time for all Human sequences on 1 CPU (days) 159.70 858.24
