  • twinscan

System Variables

  • HPC_TWINSCAN_DIR - installation directory
  • HPC_TWINSCAN_BIN - executable directory
  • TWINSCAN - internal variable used by the Twinscan suite of software

Additional Information

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 run.
