System Requirements

Biopet is build on top of GATK Queue, which requires having java installed on the analysis machine(s).

For end-users:

  • Java 7 JVM or OpenJDK 7
  • Cran R 2.15.3
  • It strongly advised to run Biopet pipelines on a compute cluster since the amount of resources needed can not be achieved on a local machine. Note that this does not mean it is not possible!

For developers:

  • OpenJDK 7
  • Minimum of 4 GB RAM {todo: provide more accurate estimation on building}
  • Maven 3
  • Compiled and installed version 3.4 of GATK + Queue in your maven repository.
  • IntelliJ or Netbeans 8.0 for development
