I am using BLAT to align two versions of the genome of C. elegans. I can see in the Activity Monitor of my Mac Book Pro High Sierra that
blat is using 100% of a CPU. However, is this programme able to use more than one core / CPU to speed up the alignment?
I cannot find such option in the help page of the tool here.
I installed blat using
conda install -c bioconda blat.
I am using the latest version of
blat, i.e. 36.
