System requirements

The Biomedical Genomics Server Solution requirements are those of the CLC Genomics Server, which can be found on our general system requirements page and also in the user manual.

Job nodes and grid nodes must run on the same type of operating system as the master node.

Special memory requirements for genomic analyses
For systems where mappings, and other analyses, using genome references will be carried out, the memory requirements are:

  • Human and Mouse exome and panel analysis
    • Minimum: 8 GB RAM
    • Recommended: 16 GB RAM
  • Human Whole Genome analysis
    • Minimum: 24 GB RAM
    • Recommended: 64 GB RAM

These requirements are based on genome size.


Analyses on a Biomedical Genomics Server can be initiated using a Biomedical Genomics Workbench or the CLC Server Command Line Tools.
