SHOGoiN CELLBLAST

Calculation Speed

CELLBLAST can compare a query with tens of thousands of samples in the database within a minute. In fact, comparison an artificial query with 50,000 genes with 1,000 and 10,000 of samples in the artificial database with in average of 1.59 and 14.3 seconds using a server with 12 × Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2630 v2 @ 2.60GHz and 198 GB RAM (without parallel computing), respectively. If CELLBLAST has already been installed on user's machine, its calculation speed can be measured using the example query and database with 50,000 genes and 10,000 samples, and 'time' command as follows:

$ time ./runGerMacher exampleDatabase.bin exampleQuery.CM
