SPAdes assembly

Hello! I’m trying to assemble a genome with Spades. As output files, I need to get only contigs, which I indicated when I uploaded read 1 and read 2. Spades took already more than 24 hours to load. Can you please tell me how long it can take to load Spades? Does it make sense to wait or is it better to try to reset everything and load it again?

Spades can take a lot of time and simply deleting the job and starting it again won’t do you any good.

What can help though is if you first downsample your input reads so spades simply has less data to process.

Thanks for your answer. I am doing this for the first time, so I wasn’t sure about process, but if it always takes a long time, then I just need to wait
