Memory usage of trimming tools on simulated datasets
Maximum memory usage, in MB, of jobs executed on our cluster for trimming tools run on simulated datasets with error rates of A) 0.2\%, B) 0.6\%, and C) 1.2\%. Note that this memory usage includes the overhead of the Singularity container and is thus an overestimate.
CPU Utilization of trimming tools
Average total CPU usage of each trimming tool run on A) simulated data, B) WGBS data, and C) mRNA-Seq data.
Mapping execution times
Execution time of A) bwa-meth on WGBS reads, and B) STAR on mRNA-Seq reads, for reads trimmed by each tool as well as the untrimmed reads.
