CLC Genomics Workbench

Special requirements for the 3D Molecule Viewer

Special requirements for read mapping. The numbers below give minimum and recommended memory for systems running mapping and analysis tasks. The requirements suggested are based on the genome size.

Special requirements for de novo assembly. De novo assembly may need more memory than stated above – this depends both on the number of reads, error profile and the complexity and size of the genome. See our white paper on de novo assembly for examples of the memory usage of various data sets.

System Recommendations

 

Java

The CLC Workbenches are built using Java technology. If you are a Windows, Mac OS X or Linux user, the CLC Workbench includes a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) which is needed to run the CLC Workbench. This JRE will not interfere with existing JRE’s on your computer and will only be used to run the CLC Workbench.

CLC License Server

The license server does not require much in terms of processing power and it only consumes a few megabytes of memory. This means that if you are putting together a dedicated server specifically for use as a license server, a modestly powered system equipped with a high number of redundant components will probably be a better investment than a system which is faster, has more memory, etc.

The system requirements for the CLC License Server are:

The CLC License Server is based on the LM-X License Manager. The list of systems above has been derived from the LM-X supported system list. The CLC License Server will likely work on other Windows, Linux and (newer) macOS systems, but we cannot guarantee this.
