  • "R Killed" when working with large BAM files

    I'm trying to work with large BAM files produced by bowtie alignment of illumina sequencing runs. I'm able to work with them fine with tools outside of R, but R seems to have some limitations or issues with the size.

    Issue: After reading 4 bam files of 650 MB (maybe 1 million reads each) with the function readAligned("path","bamfile.bam,"BAM") from the ShortRead package, R simply terminates with the message:

    /usr/lib64/R/bin/BATCH: line 60: 10315 Killed ${R_HOME}/bin/R -f ${in} ${opts} ${R_BATCH_OPTIONS} > ${out} 2>&1

    I'm doing this on a linux-based grid engine, so it's not about the windows-specific memory limits. Also, this does not happen with small BAM files for testing. It night be about internal limits on table sizes, though?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi. In lieu of other error msgs. Is it a possibility that the job timed out or was killed due to system admin set limits that are common for shared resources?
    Have u tried running just this command in a terminal?

      'Killed' is sometimes induced by running out of memory - the linux schedulder than kills processes until there is enough free memory again.

      How much swap space have you configured in addition to your RAM (and how much RAM is that)?

        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...
