Graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerated computing has pioneered a new direc-tion of research for various combinatorial optimization problems. One such problem whichrequires huge computation is protein structure prediction (PSP). PSP is NP-complete problem.Computational prediction of protein native structure from its primary amino acid sequence istermed as ab initio PSP problem. Till date, wet lab experiments conducted on PSP indicate thatexisting methods take lots of experimentation time and expensive. As a consequence, only 1%of the sequence’s structures are known. This work presents a parallel programming approachwith GPU computing for PSP using 2D triangular hydrophobic-polar (HP) lattice model. Theimplementation of proposed approach is tested on the set of HP benchmark sequence of alength ranging from 25 to 100. The experimental result shows that the proposed approach hassignificantly improved the performance of prediction with immense drop in computation time.© 2016 Published by Elsevier GmbH.
