  1. These figures are based on the analysis of a set of 346 samples (batch 2) from the MS-GWAS.
  2. * run on a PC (Pentium quad core, 3 Ghz computer with 2 GB RAM) with file-based storage enabled
  3. run on a quad-core AMD Opteron 2.7 Ghz CPU linux machine with 64 GB RAM
  4. timing does not include time taken by GenomeStudio to output X and Y data used as input for these methods (30 mins and 0.65 GB RAM on the PC we used)
