Hardware requirements for the Genomics Suite or the DNASTAR Lasergene package are largely dependent upon whether you will be doing reference-guided or de novo assemblies. Please see the following sections for details of the technical requirements for each project type. If you ever need help, we welcome your call to help you through the hardware or software installation process.
For a network version of our software, please see our DNASTAR License Server Technical Requirements.
