  • Cuffdiff thread option

    Can anyone explain to me the following option in CuffDiff:


    -p/--num-threads <int>
    Use this many threads to align reads. The default is 1.

    What are threads? Will it take longer to run the analysis if multiple threads are used? Will such an analysis be more accurate?

  • #2
    These are the individual processes that are used by cuffdiff. For example if you have a hyper-threaded core-i3, use -p 4. It uses as much CPU power as possible. So it shortens the analysis time. If you have a 4-core CPU, you are better off using -p 8. It depends on how many thread your processor can handle.

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
