This container is based on the ubuntu:lastest image from January 2016 (6cc0fc2a5ee3). To this I have:
-installed Biopython and the ete2 library
-installed R, plus the ggplot2, grid, and MASS packages
-installed NCBI BLAST+, MUSCLE, USEARCH, ClustalO, DNAML, BEAST2, and the Fastx-Toolkit
plus dependencies for each and installation tools such as pip
I have also run the initial setup script for SONAR and configured the path variables so that SONAR scripts can be called from a project directory without needing the full path.
