Running Tutorials on Your Computer

We have created a debian repository to make it easier to use our tutorials. This repository allows you to install all required software and example data included in tutorials on your computer. Using this repository will require that you have administrator access to a computer with Linux System. If you don't have this level of access or your computer running non-Linux systems (Windows or OS), you have two options. First, you could install the repository on a remote cloud serve, such as VULTR. Second, you can install a Virtual Machine program (such as VirtualBox) on your computer, and then load our pre-configured virtual machine image (VM Image) into the Virtual Machine. You can refer to these online videos here to install VirtualBox on your computer.

The VM Image is available here. The password for the student account is "LetMeIn". Feel free to change it to whatever you like.

To install the repository on the cloud server, virtual machine, or your own computer, you need to follow these configuration steps. Please run as the root user or using the sudo command.

echo "deb [trusted=yes] https://statgen.research.bcm.edu/deb ./" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/statgen.list
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
