- HPC_CANU_BIN - executable directory
- HPC_CANU_DOC - documentation directory
When running Canu you should specify Memory and CPU usage in your command. e.g.
#SBATCH --cpus-per-task=8 #SBATCH --mem=10g
If your canu jobs run out of memory make sure to set scheduled job resources in gridOptions and merylMemory respectively to make sure meryl does not exceed the requested memory. See https://canu.readthedocs.io/en/latest/parameter-reference.html for canu parameters.
