We recommend using the
Bioconda infrastructure to load and install all search tools, because it will automatically resolve version conflicts and will make your life much easier.
To install conda and bioconda users first need to install Miniconda.
# download installation script wget https://repo.anaconda.com/miniconda/Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh # run installation script bash Miniconda3-latest-Linux-x86_64.sh
Follow the following procedures:
The installer prompts “In order to continue the installation process, please review the license agreement.” Click Enter to view license terms.
Scroll to the bottom of the license terms and enter “Yes” to agree.
The installer prompts you to click Enter to accept the default install location, CTRL-C to cancel the installation, or specify an alternate installation directory. If you accept the default install location, the installer displays “PREFIX=/home/
The installer prompts “Do you wish the installer to prepend the Anaconda<2 or 3> install location to PATH in your
/home/<user>/.bashrc ?” Enter Yes.
NOTE: If you enter “No”, you must manually add the path to Anaconda or conda will not work. See FAQ.
The installer describes Microsoft VS Code and asks if you would like to install VS Code. Enter yes or no. If you selected yes, follow the instructions on screen to complete the VS Code installation.
NOTE: Installing VS Code with the Anaconda installer requires an internet connection. Offline users may be able to find an offline VS Code installer from Microsoft.
The installer finishes and displays “Thank you for installing Anaconda<2 or 3>!”
Close and open your terminal window for the installation to take effect, or you can enter the command source

Now users can type
conda in the command line. E.g.
conda update conda
Next run to update user rights:
Install packages like this (
conda intsall [...]):
conda install numpy
Or search for available packages like this:
conda search PACKAGENAME
Here are the full Conda Docs.
Here are the detailed Bioconda installation instructions.
conda config --add channels defaults conda config --add channels bioconda conda config --add channels conda-forge
After installing conda you will need to add the bioconda channel as well as the other channels bioconda depends on. It is important to add them in this order so that the priority is set correctly (that is, conda-forge is highest priority).
The conda-forge channel contains many general-purpose packages not already found in the defaults channel.
