Program locations

The majority of programs can be found in:


(Ana) conda programs are a bit more difficult to track down, but try looking in these two locations:



Modules are a relatively simply way to add programs to your system $PATH

A module is a text file. Here's an example from cat /gscratch/srlab/programs/modules/maker-3.01.03.module:

proc ModulesHelp { } {
        puts stderr "\tAdds MAKER dependencies to environment."

module-whatis "Adds MAKER dependencies to environment."

setenv          ZOE             /gscratch/srlab/programs/snap-2013-11-29/Zoe
setenv          AUGUSTUS_CONFIG_PATH             /gscratch/srlab/programs/Augustus-3.3.2/config
prepend-path    PATH            /gscratch/srlab/programs/exonerate-2.2.0-x86_64/bin
prepend-path    PATH            /gscratch/srlab/programs/ncbi-blast-2.10.1+/bin
prepend-path    PATH            /gscratch/srlab/programs/snap-2013-11-29
prepend-path    PATH            /gscratch/srlab/programs/RepeatMasker-4.1.0

There are two lines that describe what the module does (e.g. Adds MAKER dependencies to environment.)

Those are followed by setting some environmental variables and adding other programs to the system $PATH needed by the MAKER program.

Loading modules

There are many pre-made modules available for anyone to use at any time. List them like so:

module avail

Modules preceded by contrib/ are modules created by other Mox users outside of the Roberts Lab.

The remaining modules are those created by Mox UW-IT staff and primarily utility applications.

To run (i.e. load) a module (replace <module_name> with the module name or full path to module file):

module load <module_name>

You can add our custom modules directory to your ~/.bashrc file. This will allow you to load a module by calling just the the name of the module file without the need to call the full module paht. See the modules directory for more info on what custom modules are available (/gscratch/srlab/programs/modules).

printf "\n%s\n%s\n%s" "# Prepend custom modules to system ${MODULEPATH}" "MODULEPATH=/gscratch/srlab/programs/modules:${MODULEPATH}" "export MODULEPATH" \
>> ~/.bashrc

To make the above command active, type bash at the command prompt (you only need to do this one time; your changes will be loaded each time you login).

Available Programs

Below is the current list of programs available on Mox. It's very dynamic, so please check the contents of $/gscratch/srlab/programs periodically. If you need some other/new programs, please refer to the program installation instructions or feel free to ask Sam.
