TSD servers has a number of software packages installed by default and optional packages are available upon request.
TSD is running Windows Server 2012 R2.
Standard software on the VMs include:

- Integrated Genome Viewer (IGV)
The essence of the BYOL - 'Bring Your Own License' model in TSD is to facilitate researchers who have a valid license for a software approved by their Software Vendor. In such cases we can make that software available for the researcher in a TSD-project. This implies:
- The license is per user and not per project.
- The researcher takes the responsibility to contact the Software Vendor to get an approval to use her/his license key in a TSD-project.

Sharing data and software between projects
The /shared folder is readable by any user of any project in TSD. In this folder any data and/or software that may be of general interest is available.
In /shared folder, you will find:
ref/ containing public reference data
src/ containing bioinformatics software source code
lib/ containing bioinformatics software libraries
miscellaneous from the domain of computational psychology
As part of the collaboration with EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE projects, TSD supports data anonymization through Amnesia which is a flexible data anonymization tool that transforms relational and transactional databases to dataset where formal privacy guaranties hold. It allows to remove identifying information from sensitive data. Amnesia not only removes direct identifiers like names, SSNs etc but also transforms secondary identifiers like birth date and zip code so that individuals cannot be identified in the data. Amnesia supports k-anonymity and km-anonymity.

In TSD, Amnesia is offered on Windows hosts. To get Amnesia in your TSD project please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Request for additional software
We try to accommodate your software requests as much as possible. However, since security is the primary concern for our infrastructure, only software approved by our IT-security officer will be installed.
The installation might take between one day up to four weeks, depending on the complexity of the software package and changes to the OS to support it. If the software installation requires many hours of experts work, we might request compensation before the installation activities.
