UPPMAX in a Can User Guide

One unique feature of UPPMAX is the vast number of installed bioinformatic tools. "UPPMAX in a can" (working title) is a Singularity container that mounts the module system, software tree, project directories, and the users home directory.

What it means is that you can run all the software available on UPPMAX on another high performance cluster, the cloud, or even your local computer. This opens up e.g. the possibility to skip moving your sensitive data from your cluster or skip the whole queue system completely.

The source code is available on Github. You can download it directly from the cloud and run it with the singularity command:
singularity pull shub://UPPMAX/uppmax_in_a_can:latest

Uppmax in a Can is still in a state of early development. More information and additional details will be added here as the work progresses.
