What limits the number of sequences and size of sequences that are part of a DNAStringSet? Are there any way to change these limits?
On my home laptop I can create a DNAStringSet of about sixty thousand sequences of length 1500. On my desktop I can only make a DNAStringSet of twenty thousand sequences. Does anyone know what is creating this difference is maximum size?
Is there any way I can "up" the amount of memory available to a sequence set? I would like to be able to have at least one hundred thousand sequences (of width 1500 nucleotides) in memory.
