General Software on the HPC

The pages under this section describe some of the software that you would use if you were writing or maintaining your own software; compilers, languages (such as C, C++, Fortran, Python, Perl, R) and utilities. You can install your own software in your home directory.

Software comes from prepackaged software for the Centos 8 distribution and the repository “Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux”.
In addition eResearch has its own repository of software compiled and installed by eResearch which is installed under /shared/opt.

All installed software can be found by querying the DNF package manager: dnf list installed | grep software_name where software_name is what you are looking for such as “atlas” or “python”.

You can search for available packages using dnf search software_name. looking for such as “sqlite” or “sequence” or “alignment”. The search will also search in the package description field.

For a more comprehensive list of the software install on this HPC see this Software List.
