The YCRC will install and manage commonly used software. These software are available as modules, which allow you to add or remove different combinations and versions of software to your environment as needed. See our module guide for more info. You can run module avail to page through all available software once you log in.

You should also feel free to install things for yourself. For Python environments, we recommend using a virtual environment in Anaconda Python. For R enviroments, we recommend using install.packages() to manage your own package needs.

For all other software, we encourage users to attempt to install their own software into their directories. Here are instructions for common software procedures.

We provide guides for certain software packages and languages as well.

If you run into issues with your software installations, the YCRC staff can assist at hpc@yale.edu.
