For the current version of QGene (4.4.0), you will need:
- Java JDK version 1.5 or higher. Version 1.8 is recommended. Mac OS X users, download your JDK from here. Newer Mac OS X (year 2009 onwards) is shipped with JDK bundled in a separate CD. Consult your system administrators.
- 512 MB of memory or more
NOTE: While QGene may run under Java JRE instead of JDK, several analyses will run much slower than expected, in particular permutation analysis. This is because JRE does not fully support multi-threading. So be sure to install the JDK, not just the JRE!
NOTE: QGene can run with memory as little as 64 MB. That may be sufficient for simple QTL or trait analysis, but isn't recommended. However, eQTL analysis needs at least 512 MB of memory.
NOTE: Java 1.5 is also called Java 5. Java 1.8 is also called Java 8.
