From TWINSCAN documentation:
In practice, Twinscan's memory requirements are approximately linear with the length of the target sequence. A rough guideline is 1 GB of memory for 1 Mb of input sequence.
See the sample nscandriver.config at /apps/twinscan/4.1.2/conf/nscandriver.config for details on how to set up a Nscan_driver.pl run.
