Minimum Requirement
Recommended for Best Performance
Operating System
64bit Linux or 64bit
RAM for human.
(Smaller references
require less RAM)
16GB for base space
24GB for color space
(Applied Biosystems).
Illumina does not require more than
16GB, but RAM beyond 24GB will
improve ABI performance, so 32GB
is preferred for ABI.
Any Intel or AMD 64bit
CPU with SSE3
Dual Quad-core Xeon or Opteron
(total 8 or more cores).
Hard Disk
50GB for Illumina
260GB for ABI
Fast sustained Read/Write rates are
