A lot of research projects use Python and different Python packages/modules to achieve results. This page describes how to easily setup a workable python environment with your own python packages inside.

For new projects, you should in particular consider whether you want to use the 2.x or 3.x variant of Python. The two versions are not compatible and in some cases, you may have to use an older 2.7.x versions of Python due to some of your packages not working with Python 3.x.


At Abacus we maintain a short list of standard software available for our users. A few software packages are only available for some research groups.

Users are not limited to using the software installed by us. You are welcome to install your own software either in your home directory or in your project's /work/project/ folder.
