Bioinformatics Tools and Services


Preinstalled software at CSC computers

CSC's computers have a wide range of preinstalled scientific software and databases with usage instructions, so that you can concentrate on science instead of system administration. We also offer training and user support via CSC Service Desk, e.g. to install your own code.

Most of the services are free for academic researchers in Finland but require a user account at CSC.

See the link below for readily installed bio tools in Puhti and Mahti supercomputersMany of these tools can be used with the easy-to-use Chipster graphical user interface software.
