Bioconda Python packages Many bioinformatics Python packages are now maintained and available for the popular Anaconda Python distribution. Python packages for the Anaconda distribution are distributed through a variety of different bundles, called channels. The bioconda channel is specifically set up for the maintenance and distribution of popular bioinformatics packages. On Rivanna, we offer two bioconda modules, one using Python 2.7 and the other using Python 3.6.
Available Versions The current installation of Bioconda incorporates the most popular packages. To find the available versions and learn how to load them, run:
module spider bioconda The output of the command shows the available Bioconda module versions.
Overview Many commonly used bioinformatics software packages on Rivanna are available as individual modules or as Python packages bundled in the bioconda modules.
Please see our HowTo for more information about using this software on Rivanna.
Software Availability If a particular package is not available, several options are available. If it is sufficiently widely used, Research Computing staff will install it as a new module. If we determine that it is too specialized, you can install it yourself. Please use permanent storage such as your home directory to install software. If you have difficulty we can assist you to install the package.
