Hey guys, I am doing de novo assembly. The data is downloaded from NCBI and they are DNA-seq short paired-end reads, 100bp x 2, about 120G in total. I use SOAPdenovo to assembly them. The k-mer value was set 29. After 10 hours, the server reported like this:
Ran out of memory while applying 13290854152bytes There may be errors as follows: 1) Not enough memory. 2) The ARRAY may be overrode. 3) The wild pointers.
It was done on a server with 768G RAM and 50T internal storage. I don't know why it ran out of memory while applying 13G data, could anyone explain a little bit? There was no other tasks during the assembly.
