Downloading IRIDA

You can find individual download links, and links to corresponding documentation in the sections below.

IRIDA Virtual Appliance

Documentation for installing IRIDA can be found here, but is time consuming and must be adjusted to the quirks of your environment. We provide a fully-configured virtual appliance that can be opened with Oracle VirtualBox for demonstration purposes. You can download the complete package at:

Using the Virtual Appliance

The virtual appliance is currently configured to use 8 CPU cores and requires at least 8GB of RAM. You may reduce the number of CPU cores allocated to the virtual appliance, however, we do not recommend that you use any less than 4 CPU cores.

Once you start the virtual appliance, you can connect to IRIDA in several ways: using your web browser, using an uploader tool, or using SSH. Please see “Using the Virtual Appliance” for more information about how to use the IRIDA virtual appliance.

IRIDA Web Interface

The IRIDA web interface is distributed as a war archive. You can access the latest stable release of IRIDA at:

You may also see all releases of the IRIDA web interface at:

The documentation for installing and configuring the IRIDA web interface (and Galaxy!) can be found at:

IRIDA Uploader

The IRIDA Uploader is an application used to submit sequencing data from a variety of sequencers to an instance of IRIDA. You can access the latest stable release of the IRIDA Uploader at:

The Uploader is available as a stand alone application with user interface, and as a command line utility.

A tutorial for the stand alone application can be found here:

The command line utility is available via source code on Github as well as a package on bioconda

The documentation for using the IRIDA Uploader is included in the package, but can also be found at:

Sample Data

Sample data for testing IRIDA can be found at:

The sample data package consists of simulated Illumina MiSeq read data for three publicly available Listeria Monocytogenes genomes. You can find more information about the simulated data at:
