Hi, I'm trying to use the STAR ultrafast aligner, first I need to generate a genome to align to, so, as it is described in the manual I run this command line:
/pathToStarDir/STAR --runMode genomeGenerate --genomeDir /path/to/GenomeDir --genomeFastaFiles /path/to/genome/*.fa --runThreadN 11
GenomeDir contains one fasta file for each human chromosome.
I started it yesterday morning and after 24 hours it does not finish yet...
I wondering if I did something wrong and is stack in a never ending point. I show few post with similar problems but they did not come out with a solution that works for me.
I doing it in a computer with 8 cores i7 3.60GHz and 31.3 of memory ram
Thanks in advantage
