Introduction

Research Computing offers a wide variety of software applications and programming languages for researchers. These applications and tools are available for use on Research Computing servers. Selecting any of the applications below will lead you to a listing of the information provided by the Research Computing group about that application, including documentation, FAQs, where to find manuals, links to other resources, and more.

UNC has secured site licenses for many of the software packages below and makes the software available to run on systems outside Research Computing. See ITS Software Acquisitions page for details.

If there is some software package, utility, or tool which is not listed but which would help your work, please contact us at research@unc.edu and we will consider providing it.

The instructions given to run these programs assume a familiarity with the Research Computing infrastructure and the UNIX, Linux, Microsoft Windows, or MacOS operating systems, as appropriate.
