Table 4 The runtime and memory usage of the assemblies on the human chromosome 14 genome.

From: TIGER: tiled iterative genome assembler

Evaluations Wall-clock Time (Hr.) Peak memory usage (GB) Thread # in total K-mer size # Tile #
Velvet 61k 0.95 8.26 1 1 1
Tiger-Velvet-R 1i 1.49 0.16 1 8 150
Tiger-Velvet-I 1i 1.96 0.29 1 3 150

Tiger-Soap-I 1i 1.67 1.9 1 3 150
  1. All evaluations are done using 1 thread. "#k" stands for the applied k-mer size. "#i" stands for the iteration number. Note: The runtime and memory usage for Tiger is on the read assembly (Step 5) only.
