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 (e.g., specific compilers, libraries, and supporting packages). For information about managing your user environment, see On the research computing systems at IU, how do I use Modules to manage my software environment?

If you need help or have questions about bioinformatics software on Big Red II, Carbonate, or Karst, contact the UITS Scientific Applications and Performance Tuning (SciAPT) team.
