miramem(1) estimating needed memory for a MIRA assembly project


When called from the command line, it will ask a number of questions and then print out an estimate of the amount of RAM needed to assemble the project. Take this estimate with a grain of salt, depending on the sequences properties, variations in the estimate can be +/- 30% for bacteria and 'simple' eukaryotes. The higher the number of repeats is, the more likely you will need to restrict memory usage in some way or another.
