    • Downloading Matlab will take some time. Before beginning the download and installation, make sure you have a stable internet connection, your computer is plugged in and is not set to automatically sleep.
    • A full Matlab installation will require about 10GB of hard drive space. If you are space constrained, you can customize for a minimal installation (which requires, sigh, about 5GB) that will work for our course by selecting only the following on the Product Selection window during installation: Matlab, Bioinformatics, Statistics and Machine Learning. If you need other toolboxes for your other courses, you can always re-run the installer to install them.
