I have a human assembly that I am running through the BUSCO vertebrate panel. I initially set the CPUs=12 for the BUSCO command. It generated the primary results very fast (a few hours). However, it's now on the gff2gbSmallDNA step (augustus) which is taking a very long time. It's been 48hrs. I can see that it is only using 1 CPU so I suspect this is part of the problem. Is there a way to get around this by giving BUSCO an option that I'm not aware of or modify the gff2gbSmallDNA.pl script to use more than 1CPU?
Thanks for any info or tips.
