Table 5 Comparison of the runtime and memory usage on the human chromosome 14 assembly.

From: TIGER: tiled iterative genome assembler

Evaluations Wall-clock time (Hr.) Speedup against 1 thread Peak memory usage (GB) Thread # in total Machine # K-mer size # Tile #
Velvet 61k 0.95 1x 8.26 1 1 1 1

  1. "#k" stands for the applied k-mer size. "#i" stands for the iteration number.
  2. + The memory usage across machines can not be measured in our environment.
