Singularity allows complex software to be run on the cluster, that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to install. Using singularity, you can generate a single "image" file in which you install all your software, and then you can copy that single image file and run it on the cluster. Additionally, singularity allows more directly comparisons of running software between different clusters, because you can use the exact same versions of software that may not be installed on the different clusters.

This guide will help you create your own singularity images.
