New Alces Gridware Release! v20170310


We have just released an exciting new version of the Alces Gridware repository! We have included some applications requested by users of Alces Flight along with new versions of packages previously included in Alces Gridware.

New and updated packages in this release include:-

  • Phyloseq v1.19.1 - A set of classes and tools to facilitate the import, storage, analysis, and graphical display of microbiome census data.
  • Qiime v1.9.1 - An open source software package for comparison and analysis of microbial communities, primarily based on high-throughput amplicon sequencing data.
  • ATLAS v3.10.3 - Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software - portably optimal linear algebra software
  • Relion v2.0.3 - A stand-alone computer program that employs an empirical Bayesian approach to refinement of (multiple) 3D reconstructions or 2D class averages in electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM).

And many more! You can check out the latest list on your Alces Flight cluster by running alces gridware update - which will download the latest version of the repository.

We’ve got lots more in the pipeline for our next release of Alces Gridware which will add new and improved applications optimally compiled and ready-to-go! If you have any suggestions for packages that you’d like to see in future Alces Gridware releases - please start a thread in here and we’ll endeavour to get them into a future release!
