Scalability of Myrna. Number of worker CPU cores allocated from EC2 versus throughput measured in experiments per hour: that is, the reciprocal of the wall clock time required to conduct a whole-human experiment on the 1.1 billion read Pickrell et al. dataset . The line labeled 'linear speedup' traces hypothetical linear speedup relative to the throughput for 80 processor cores.
