GNU Guix and Bioinformatics


Bioinformatics needs GNU Guix because:

  1. Software gets installed and deployed often

  2. There are many dependencies between software packages

  3. Often multiple versions of software are run at the same time

  4. Reproducible installs is a requirement in Science

  5. Sane 1-click installs are the future

See the README for more on installing and hacking GNU Guix.

Special or non-free packages

GNU Guix only accepts packages that have an FSF approved license. For Bioinformatics we also have non-free packages and packages that need special configuration settings and live in separate repositories, e.g.

Use the GUIX_PACKAGE_PATH to include one or more of these package lists.
