It should be OK for a small number of users, but at some point if usage increases you will have to switch to a multi-machine setup (or just a single even bigger machine). If you do have access to a cluster, you can choose which tools are run locally and which are run on the cluster. Don't forget to budget for enough disk storage as well - Galaxy usage tends to generate a lot of intermediate files which your users may not routinely delete from their histories. > De novo assembly can also be for the human/mouse genome. > You may not have enough RAM, however I have no personal experience doing de novo assemblies of mouse/human to guide you here. Someone else on the list should be able to help, or since this is a general question try searching online, e.g. at seqanswers.com I'm not sure how easy it would be to setup your Galaxy to only allow one de novo assembly at a time - which would seem a sensible precaution given you may have multiple users (or the same user) trying to run assemblies in parallel.
