Setting up and installing Bioinformatics software is a major hurdle for beginner and experienced Bioinformaticians alike. After attending a workshop, you want to get on with using the tools you have just learnt about rather than messing installing C compiilers and resolving dependancies etc. Moreover, if you use a Windows or Mac on a daily basis much of the Bioinformatics software you need will not be available on your machine.

In this short primer, I describe you can make use of some pre-built software installations on your own machine or on a high-performance computing environment
