Conda and Python Modules


Users can install their own Conda package by loading the system-installed Conda and then creating and activating their required environments:

module load conda
conda create -n [name of the environment] -c [name of the channels] [list of packages to install]
conda activate [name of environment]

Note that you can leave off the -c bioconda, because the system-wide conda configuration already has the bioconda channel configured as well as conda-forge

You can also replace conda with mamba in the create phase, it will solve the environment much more quickly. When the environment is active, you can run the following command to see that it lives in your home directory:



Python is also installed and is available in the cluster Conda; you can load it using:

module load conda
conda activate
