I’m using Uchime for chimera calling. The server I am working on has 8 processors but when Uchime starts I get the following message:
Checking sequences from data/mothur/process/stability.trim.contigs.good.unique.good.filter.unique.precluster.fasta ... Reducing processors to 2.
Is this intrinsic to Uchime? Even for 2 samples it is taking a long time to complete (over 2hrs). I want it to use all processors available to run faster. Is this possible?
