  1. Standalone number of processes indicates the number of FASTQ file pairs that are processed in parallel. Timing for Falco includes initialisation and configuration time which are approximately 10 min. Runtime for STAR with 16 processes is not available as some STAR processes are killed by the operating system, resulting in failure of the job
