BioBuilds 2016.11

BioBuilds 2016.11 is the second major release of 2016. This release continues to use Continuum Analytics’ (mini)conda installer and builds on the 2016.04 release by adding 19 packages and updating 36 existing ones. Please refer to the “Applications in BioBuilds 2016.11” table below for more details.


After installing conda, you can install BioBuilds 2016.11 by running:

Note that the “conda config –set allow_softlinks false” is optional, but can help prevent certain types of bugs in cases where BioBuilds and conda are installed on different file systems (UNIX mount points).

Adding “/path/to/biobuilds-2016.11/bin” to your $PATH environment variable (for example, by setting it in your ~/.bash_profile) will then allow you to run BioBuilds applications without providing a full path. Please refer to the “BioBuilds 2016.11 Release Notes” for additional information about other installation options (including partial installs) and required system libraries.
