About bioinformatics packages at IU

At Indiana University, a number of bioinformatics packages are available for use on the Big Red II, Carbonate, and Karst research supercomputers.

To see which packages are available, you must have an account on one of the systems. For account eligibility information, see the "Research system accounts (all campuses)" section of Computing accounts at IU.

If you have an account on either system, log in, and then:

  • To view a list of bioinformatics packages available on Big Red II, on the command line, enter:
      ls -al /N/soft/cle4/modules/LIFE-SCIENCES
    
  • To view a list of bioinformatics packages available on Carbonate, on the command line, enter:
      ls -al /N/soft/rhel7/modules/carbonate/LIFE-SCIENCES
    
  • To view a list of bioinformatics packages available on Karst, on the command line, enter:
      ls -al /N/soft/rhel6/modules/karst/LIFE-SCIENCES
    

To use any of these packages, you first must add them to your user environment. Some packages require additional customization of your user environment (for example, specific compilers, libraries, and supporting packages).

For more about using Modules to configure your user environment, see Use Modules to manage your software environment on IU's research computing systems.

If you need help or have questions regarding the use of bioinformatics software on IU's research supercomputers, contact the UITS Research Applications and Deep Learning team.
