How to analyze a large data set with a limited memory.

How to analyze a large data set with a limited memory.

TCGA data sets are so large and your computer might have memory errors. It is a physical limitation and you have to add RAM to solve the problem though, you can avoid the problem somehow.

Strategies are;
  • to divide sample groups (by center)
  • to divide genes (by chromosome)
  • to reduce samples (normal-tumor pairs only)
  • to reduce genes (removing non-sense genes for the analysis)

In this case study, I'm showing the 4th way.
