Scientific Applications on NIH HPC Systems

The NIH HPC staff maintains several hundred scientific programs, packages and databases for our users. Below is a list of system-installed software available on Biowulf and Helix. Click on the application name to get to site-specific instructions on how to run a given package on the cluster, including links to the original application documentation.

In almost all cases, applications are made available through the use of environment modules.

Users are welcome to install additional applications in their own /home or /data areas, and create their own personal modules for those applications. Some applications are difficult to install or require admin privileges; in those cases, you can email staff@hpc.nih.gov with a request to install the application.
