As some of you may be aware, iCER/HPCC have been placing limits on the software they will install for users. In some cases, users making requests are being asked for the "numbers" of people who will be using the new software title or upgrade. Unfortunately, some bioinformatics software (particularly pipelines) can be unduly complex for many users to install correctly. To that end, I have been installing software packages for users on request.
Custom/private software installation requires that you provide me with access to a portion of either your /mnt/home or /mnt/research directory spaces. Research spaces are often times preferable, since the installs can be shared with all the members of a particular lab or working group. As part of the installation process, I can setup a custom private modules system, that allows you to use your custom installs, while not preventing you from also utilizing HPCC modules. Essentially, your private modules will be checked FIRST for software titles on load, and the HPCC modules secondarily.
If you are interested, please send me an email with your request.
