I have 9 samples of 16S rDNA amplicon sequencing data (1 million reads) that I have been trying to run in MOTHUR pipeline using my own computer. The problem is that i don't have more space available and due to long running times one of the last commands aborts automatically past some hours ≈ 18 hours (I think that is due to memory RAM usage/limitation).
I would like to question if someone can help me with alternatives to this.
I know that there is cloud computing resources, but there is other options beyond this one? And if this is the only solution, which one (type of cloud computing - compute engine form Google services) is the best choice?
Thank you. Best regards, António
