Requirement of Computational Power

Dear Team,

I am going to get pair-end sequencing raw files of 100 samples. (200 fastq files including *_R1.fastq, *_R2.fastq). I wanna analyze microbial population of all samples using qiime2.

Specification of my server:
RAM: 128 GB
Processor: Intel® Xeon® Silver 4114 CPU @ 2.20GHz × 40
OS: Ubundu 16.04

Would be possible to analyze all 200 fastq files together with my system configuration? Or should I divide my fastq files into batch and proceed the analysis?

Thank you

It really depends on how large those fastq files are!

However with that machine you should be able to get through most analyses quickly enough even with large sequence numbers.

I would say give it a try running them all together, if it takes longer than a week report back.
