Build Status Project Status: Active – The project has reached a stable, usable state and is being actively developed.

High-performance computing shell bootloader for bioinformatics.


Connect to your high-performance computing (HPC) cluster and clone our git repository.

git clone ~/koopa

Add these lines to your .bashrc file:

# koopa shell
if [[ -n "$PS1" ]] && [[ -f ~/koopa/ ]]; then
    . ~/koopa/

To also load koopa on a login node, we recommend symlinking your .bashrc file to .bash_profile:

ln -s ~/.bashrc ~/.bash_profile

Interactive session

To launch an interactive session, simply run:

koopa interactive -c <cores> -m <memory> -t <time>

For example, here's how to start an interactive session for 6 hours using 2 cores and 8 GB of RAM per core, on an HPC using the slurm scheduler:

koopa interactive -c 2 -m 8 -t 0-06:00
