BioBuilds 2016.04

BioBuilds 2016.04 is the first major release of 2016. This release continues to use Continuum Analytics’ (mini)conda installer and builds on the 2015.11 release by adding 25 packages and updating 21 existing ones. Please refer to the “Applications in BioBuilds 2016.04” table in the release notes for details.

After installing conda, you can install BioBuilds 2016.04 by running:

conda update -c conda -y conda
conda create -c biobuilds -p /path/to/biobuilds-2016.04 biobuilds=2016.04

Adding “/path/to/biobuilds-2016.04/bin” to your $PATH (for example, by setting it in your ~/.bash_profile) will then allow you to run BioBuilds applications without providing a full path.
