Starting 2020.04.10, IBIC computers runs the Debian 10.3 LTS 64 bit platform. All standard Linux packages are included. In addition, we have installed the following packages to create an integrated neuroimaging analysis environment. This operating system and application software platform is also available as the IBIC "Evolution" Virtual Machine, which can be run on other platforms (e.g., PC, Mac).
