The Structural Biology Grid software suite is available to consortium members and their respective lab members here on campus. The software suite has been installed such that it will be accessible via the directory '/programs' to anyone who has been added to the sbgrid user group. SBGrid members who have an account on an HPC system will have this group added to their list of groups. Members who do not have an account will need to fill out the access request and agreement, here: 

Apply for an Account | High Performance Computing

Members of labs belonging to the SBGrid consortium will likewise have to fill out an access request.

Once an account is set up and the sbgrid user group has been added to the account, an SBGrid welcome message will be displayed upon logging into the cluster:
