Alphafold on Firefly

A singularity container image is available for using Alphafold on the Firefly cluster.

Instructions and required files can be found at this link: ARCCA GitHub fork of Alphafold

For quick testing, follow the steps:

  • Login in to Firefly compute node (as the head node doesn't have GPU)
    $ ssh firefly
    $ ssh firefly01 
  • Copy the example scripts directory into your working directory
    $ cp /opt/ohpc/pub/singularity/test-scripts/alphafold-2 . -R 
  • Run alphafold on test sequence T1050.fasta
    $ cd alphafold-2
    $ bash alphafold-singularity-run.sh --fasta_paths T1050.fasta
