Short Description
UPSCb RStudio container with selected Bioconductor sequencing packages
Full Description


Host the dockerfile from dockerhub/delhomme


Sorted in dependencies order:

  • Command line based:
  1. upscb-jbrowse

  2. upscb-ngs-preprocessing

  3. upscb-chipseq and upscb-rnaseq

  • R and R-studio based
  1. upscb-r-base
  2. upscb-rstudio
  3. upscb-rstudio-sequencing
  • Others:
  1. upscb-nodejs


If you do not have docker installed; do ( on a linux distro)

curl | sh
sudo usermod -a -G docker ubuntu
sudo service docker start

Then simply clone the present repository, cd into the docker you want to build
and do e.g.:

git clone
cd delhomme/upscb-jbrowse
docker build -t delhomme/upscb-jbrowse

Or if you do not want to build it on your system, but just pull it

docker pull  delhomme/upscb-jbrowse


Linux based containers


Create the user training from the group training with password
training and install JBrowse in /var/www/html. JBrowse is not
configured. To provide access to JBrowse you need to map the container
port 80; e.g. here is the run command that will start the docker and
map port 80 on port 9001

docker run -d -p 9001:80 delhomme/upscb-jbrowse


Build on the previous, contains all the tools necessary to run the
pre-processing of RNA-Seq data as described in our guidelines:
The tools are:

  • FastQC
  • SortMeRNA
  • Trimmomatic
  • MultiQC

This container also installs GateOne, a terminal emulator for the web
browser, and expose the corresponding necessary port 443. It also
expose the ssh port 22.

The following command is an example to run it that maps 443 to 10001
and 22 to 11001.

docker run -d -p 9001:80 -p 10001:443 -p 11001:22 delhomme/upscb-jbrowse

upscb-chipseq and upscb-rnaseq

These two depends on the previous one and expose the same ports. They
contain tools necessary to do ChIP-Seq and RNA-Seq analysis
respectively, i.e.

  • R
  • HTSlib
  • BEDTools
  • BWA
  • MACS2
  • USeq
  • Sissrs


  • HTSlib
  • STAR
  • HTSeq
  • kallisto


R and R-studio based

  1. upscb-r-base
    Simply install base R and create the user training from the group training with password
    training. The default R installation directory is configured to be /home/training/.r-library.

  2. upscb-rstudio
    Install RStudio server (the non-commercial edition). It exposes port
    8787 (web browser access to RStudio). Here is the run command that
    will start the docker and map port 8787 on port 12001

docker run -d -p 12001:8787 delhomme/upscb-r-studio
  1. upscb-rstudio-sequencing
    Build on the above, installing all the necessary R/Bioconductor
    packages for the analysis of RNA-Seq data.


  1. upscb-nodejs

    A simple container containing a git checkout of our nodejs website used for courses and workshops.
