Default CLC running time for an assembly of 454 reads

Hi all:

What is the estimated running time of assembling aprox. 71 million of 454
reads using CLC Assembler? We use an iBM HX5 server running Ubuntu with 40 cores and 320GB of RAM.

We have been running the process for over a week and it seems that it has stalled. We did check the status of processor and memory usage and it shows a 99-100% (%CPU) but 0% (%MEM). Wondering why!

Hard to predict exactly, but it sounds like something has gone wrong to me. Have you tried Roche's 454 gsAssembler (Newbler) ?

Thanks for your answer. It has been hard to install gsAssembler on our machine. We have a 64-bit running Ubuntu. However, we are still trying the installation, it seems it is our best bet.

What did the CLC support say? It is probably worth asking them.
gsAssembler will install on 64bit Ubuntu, don't worry ..
