/cbcb/software has been deprecated as of March 2015. Please move towards using Red Hat 7 machines and CBCB Software Modules.
CBCB users do not have root access on their machines or the communal servers. Communal CBCB software is therefore typically installed in
There are two primary subdirectories which differ by architecture. For the most part, 32bit software is installed in
while 64bit software is installed in
The appropriate subdirectory is typically dynamically chosen by embedding
in a user's path variables in their bashrc/tcshrc file.
Installing software to these directories and updating a user's path can be tricky. For this reason, many users choose to maintain specialty software in personal directories.
The latest versions of the most frequently used CBCB software is installed under

Planned Maintenance (Summer 2012)
The Pop lab is currently planning to update much of the communal software installed in sz-user-supported over the Summer of 2012. So far this list includes:
- AMOS -- Already installed
- blastall 2.2.23 -- May not be worth upgrading from 2.2.18. Will look at release notes.
- HMMer3 -- Installed.
- PERL -- May attempt to standardize default version across servers.
- Python -- May attempt to standardize default version across servers.
Please feel free to contact Ted Gibbons at email@example.com to make suggestions or express concerns about tampering with the communal software installations and the corresponding paths in the communal CBCB bashrc file.
