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 requirements for 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 license server is available for the following operating systems:

The CLC License Server software will likely work on other Linux distributions, although we cannot guarantee this.

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.
