Live CD Linux (Windows users)

  • Download the CD/DVD image from the KNOPPIX for Bio Project website (English, Japanese)

KNOPPIX for Bio (KNOB) is one CD-bootable Linux for bioinformatics based on KNOPPIX-JP. KNOB has many bioinformatics tools preinstalled, like BioRuby, BioPerl, Biopython, EMBOSS, ClustalW, BLAST, FASTA, G-language, R, Bioconductor, Taverna, etc…

KNOB runs on any Intel-compatible PC/Macs without affecting the installed OS. Since the G-language Project does not support the Windows platform, Windows users are recommended to use KNOB instead.

KNOB can also be run with virtualization software such as VMWare, Parallels, Qemu, coLinux, and etc.

By default KNOB runs in Japanese environment. To use KNOB in English environment, type the following when booting.
knoppix lang=en
