Only load the reference once when mapping several samples

Hi,

I have to map about 100 samples against nr. As far as I can tell, Diamond uses a significant amount of time (20-30 min?) to load the reference for every sample. Would it be possible to implement something like a shared reference (e.g. STAR loads the reference only once until it is unloaded). This would save a lot of time.

Cheers,
Nicole

Hi Nicole,
it would probably be possible to save some time like that, and the feature is already on my todo list. But I can't tell you at this time when it will be ready.

Hi Benjamin,

thanks for the fast reply. We would appreciate any reduction in computational time in the future.

Cheers,
Nicole
