  • How best to use --bflyHeapSpaceMax and --bflyGCThreads on Trinity

    I am currently using trinity v2.6.0. My jobs keep crashing at the butterfly stage of the analysis, with such error messages as:
    succeeded(1008), failed(108076) 99.9771% completed. Invalid maximum heap size: -Xmx16G
    The specified size exceeds the maximum representable size.
    Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
    Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

    There is clearly a problem with assigning enough memory to the JVM. My overall memory and CPU allocation for the last job I ran were:
    #PBS -l procs=64
    #PBS -l mem=1048320mb

    and the run parameters of Trinity were:
    --max_memory 1024G \
    --bflyHeapSpaceMax 16G \
    --bflyGCThreads 16 \
    --normalize_reads \
    --CPU 64 \


    I would like to know what the --bflyHeapSpaceMax option specifies. Is it the maximum JVM heap space overall, or for each thread Trinity has generated?

    Should I simply set the --bflyHeapSpaceMax to the same value as --max_memory?

    I understand that the --bflyGCThreads option removes objects from the JVM once they are no longer in use, and in doing so frees up the memory. Is this correct?

    Should I allocate on butterfly GC thread for each CPU/thread used by Trinity?

    Does Trinity generate more than one butterfly GC thread on a single CPU?

    Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
    by seqadmin


    The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

    Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
    by seqadmin




    The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
