PPA description

The packages provided by this PPA are a binary copy from and are NOT TESTED. I'll attempt to build and update them after Ubuntu 18.04 comes out.

The following packages are available in Bio-Linux 8, but absent from this PPA, as they are updated in the Ubuntu 16.04 repos:

abyss ampliconnoise arb bamtools bedtools bowtie bowtie-examples bowtie2 bowtie2-examples bwa clearcut duplicity duply ea-utils emboss emboss-data emboss-doc emboss-lib emboss-test fasttree hyphy-common infernal jellyfish jellyfish-examples jemboss khmer khmer-example khmer-test libcolt-free-java libcolt-free-java-doc librdp-taxonomy-tree-java libsis-base-java mafft mira-assembler mira-examples mira-doc ncbi-seg parafly paramiko perm pymol python-biom-format python-boto python-burrito python-cogent python-cogent-doc python-future python3-future python-screed python3-boto python-natsort python-natsort-doc python3-natsort python-setproctitle python3-setproctitle python-paramiko python3-paramiko python-pandas python-pandas-doc python-sortedcontainers python3-sortedcontainers raxml ray ray-doc ray-extra r-cran-abind r-cran-lattice r-cran-rcolorbrewer ruby-colorize scythe seqprep sortmerna stacks stacks-web staden staden-common sumatra swarm tcode tophat transdecoder velvet velvet-example velvet-long velvetoptimiser vsearch


The package hyphy-common is called hyphy in Bio-Linux 8. The latter should be removed if upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, and hyphy-common installed instead.

The package paml has not been removed from this PPA, due to paml-data-extra not existing in the Ubuntu 16.04 repos.

The package staden-doc provides documentation for staden that doesn't exist in Ubuntu 16.04 repos.

MATE packages are not needed in this PPA. If you want to you MATE in Ubuntu, install Ubuntu MATE 16.04, or install ubuntu-mate-desktop on your existing 16.04 installation.

The Unity Scope for Bio-Linux 8 doesn't work in Ubuntu 16.04.


Here's how to install all packages necessary to have the same packages installed by default as Bio-Linux 8 on Ubuntu 16.04:

First, you need to install the official R repo at Only then you are ready to install by following these commands:

sudo -s
