November 2021 Newsletter
Our November newsletter includes eight new and updated software titles, including three new versions of GPU based Tensorflow.
As a reminder, new software titles can be requested by sending email to email@example.com or filling out our webform:
BioGrids installation managers in the 1.X series will no longer work. The last released version was 1.0.695. Attempting installation with this older version will fail and will appear to be a network connection issue. Please upgrade to the new installation manager.
End Of Life for Version 1 BioGrids Installer
You do not need to reinstall titles or reactivate. Simply download the new Installation Manager and begin using.
Download MacOS and Linux versions from our wiki downloads page:
We welcome any and all feedback from the community at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remote Working Help
The BioGrids Wiki provides step by step instructions for installing BioGrids software on a local laptop or desktop machine. If you prefer a live demonstration, or run into trouble, please contact email@example.com. We can set up a Zoom meeting to assist you.
MacOS 10.15 Catalina
Due to new security measures in OSX, installation under MacOS 10.15 requires an additional step. We have detailed a workaround to install BioGrids and SBGrid on new machines. Two approaches are available.
If your use of BioGrids supplied software was an important element in your publication, please include the following statement in your work:
"Software used in the project was installed and configured by BioGrids
(cite: eLife 2013;2:e01456, Collaboration gets the most out of software.)"
See our Grant Support page for additional details.
Register here to try out our software installer, which allows users to choose from over 530 bioinfomatics and life sciences tools that can be installed as ready-to-run applications on Mac or Linux machines with the click of a button or a short command from the CLI. No need to worry about dependencies or compilation.
BioGrids is supported by a team of scientists and engineers at HMS. We provide direct support to BioGrids members. This includes all aspects of software installation and management. If you need assistance of any kind please send a note to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
