The GACRC supports scientific applications from a diverse array of research disciplines, with the largest collections being in the fields of Bioinformatics, Statistics, Computational Chemistry, and Computational Physics. Additionaly, there are a number of utilities including code compilers and debuggers. The software is primarily from the public domain, but some commercial packages are also available. Most analyses are done in the Linux command line environment, but X-Windows graphical applications are also supported.
Software is installed by user request - the GACRC staff investigate the requested software package and if it is compatible with our computing environment, they build (i.e., compile) the application, optimized for our systems. Each individual software is properly documented with submission examples and usage notes. Detailed information of all software packages currently supported on both GACRC clusters is found on the GACRC Wiki.
To request the installation of a particular software on a given cluster, first verify if it is not already present by going through our complete list. Please note that a given software will not necessarily be installed on both clusters. If it is not, please submit an installation request, with relevant information, including the cluster where the software should be installed.
