I am new to RNA-seq, so I use Saccharomyces cerevisiae to practise this process with my owe mac. But I encoutered this problem at the first step of mapping:

My RAM is 8G, but the genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is so small. I really don't know what is wrong........ Thanks!

How much RAM do you have? There are other options on this link.

My RAM is 8G, but the genome of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is small. Sorry, I am not good at English, what do you mean by ''There are other options on this link"? I should use other software?

A fix on seqanswers for this seems to be rebuilding bowtie index. Also, put your fasta file in the same directory where the bowtie index will be built. You'll save the fasta reconstruction step.

Could you provide the command and tophat+bowtie versions you;ve used please?
