Abstract : In this paper, we consider the problem of scheduling comparisons of motifs against biological databanks. This problem lies in the divisible load framework with negligible communication costs. Thus far, very few results have been proposed in this model. We first explain the relationship between this model and the preemptive uni-processor one. After having selected a few relevant metrics (max-stretch and sum-stretch), we show how to extend algorithms that have been proposed in the literature for the uni-processor model to our setting. Then we extensively study the performance of these algorithms in realistic scenarios. Our study clearly suggest an efficient heuristic for each of the two metrics, though a combined optimization is in theory not possible in the general case.
