AYB does not require training, so only base calling time is reported. The Δ% figure for AYB is the percentage difference compared to the Ibis total time. All times are the real time, in minutes, running on four cores of an Intel Xeon L5420 running at 2.5 GHz. †Ibis failed to train on the second end of the HiSeq data so no time is reported.
