Hi good people,
Recently in lab we have received a Nanopore MinION device and currently trying to figure out installation and other details. I am seeking a few suggestions from users and experts.
The running machine spec is AMD Ryzen 9 7900 12-core processor, 64GB memory running a Windows OS and also consists NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4060 TI. Based on this could you kindly suggest should I install the CPU and GPU version of the MinKNOW software to have optimum performance?
I have experience with command-line and Linux. Is it better to use the MinKNOW through Ubuntu? What are some pros and cons of doing that over using GUI?
If I understood correctly the new MinKNOW software have integrated basecaller (Dorado) onboard already. Then do I have to install in again locally for basecalling purpose?
Initially I am planning to sequence viral RNA (not directly. through cDNA prep and ligation sequencing kit), later on once I establish the protocol, would move over to mammalian cell transcriptome.
Would be really helpful to have some suggestions. Thanks a lot. Love.
