Other Software Guidelines


BWA is only available in the Westmere nodes. i.e. hornet-login1.engr.uconn.edu and hornet.engr.uconn.edu

$ module load bwa/0.7.5a


First load the fluent module

module load fluent

Next, with an input script foo.txt, run

bsub -n $nprocs -Is fluent 3d -t$nprocs -pnmpi -g -i journal-file -lsf

foo.txt must refer to a .cas input file. 3d is one of

2d    2ddp_host  2d_host  3d	3ddp_host  3d_host
2ddp  2ddp_node  2d_node  3ddp	3ddp_node  3d_node

$nprocs indicates the number of cores you need to run the job. Two $nprocs must be the same number. -g indicates no gui. For example, to start a job with 12 cores:

bsub -n 12 -Is fluent 3d -t12 -pnmpi -g -i journal-file -lsf


On Westmere nodes which refer to cn01 to cn64. Login node: hornet.engr.uconn.edu or hronet-login1.engr.uconn.edu

$ module load gcc/4.7.1

on Sandy Bridge nodes which refer to cn65 to cn104. Login node: hornet-login1.engr.uconn.edu

$ 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


For 4.6.5 with plumed on the Westmere nodes (hornet.engr.uconn.edu). The order of modulefiles should follow this command.

$ module load gcc/4.7.1 intelcis/2013.1.039-full gromacs/4.6.5-plumed


$ module load gaussian/g09d01


$ module load igraph/0.6.5


$ module load lammps/23Sep13


$ module load motif/2.3.4


$ module load rline/1.2

Then run:



$ module load gcc/4.7.1 trinityrnaseq/2013.08.14


WINE is used to execute windows application on linux, but we do not recommend user to do so. You can send email to hpchelp@engr.uconn.edu to request installation of software in linux for help.

To load WINE,

$ module load wine/1.1.27-withoutX
