Other Software Guidelines


BWA has been compiled to run on the Westmere nodes. When using sbatch, specify --partition=Westmere

$ module load bwa/0.7.5a


On Westmere nodes which refer to cn01 to cn64.

$ module load gcc/4.7.1

on Sandy Bridge nodes which refer to cn65 to cn104.

$ module load gcc/4.8.2


$ module load intelics/2012.0.032 zlib/1.2.3-ics hdf5/1.8.9-ics netcdf/4.2-ics geos-chem/v9-02

If you want to compile geos-chem, for some cases, you need to use ifortran in netcdf (e.g. ticket 46382). The following modules are required:

$ module load intelics/2013.1.039-full zlib/1.2.8-ics hdf5/1.8.12-ics netcdf/4.2-ics-2013.1.039


For 5.1.4-plumed-gsl (the default "gromacs" module), the order of modulefiles should follow this command:

$ module load gcc/5.4.0-alt zlib/1.2.8 mpi/openmpi/2.1.0 plumed/2-gnu boost/1.61.0-gcc-mpi fftw/3.3.6-gcc540a gsl gromacs

Note that Gromacs only runs on our Haswell and Skylake nodes. Please add one of the following lines to your Slurm submission script.

To submit to the Haswell node architecture:

#SBATCH --exclude=cn[65-69,71-136,325-343,345-353,355-358,360-364,369-398,400-401],gpu[07-10]

To submit to the Skylake node architecture:

#SBATCH --exclude=cn[65-69,71-136,153-256,265-320,325-328]

When loading the gromacs module above, the gmx command changes to gmx_mpi and that change would need to be declared in the submission script that is used.


$ module load gaussian/g09d01


$ module load igraph/0.6.5


$ module load gcc/4.7.1 trinityrnaseq/2013.08.14
