Minnesota Supercomputing Institute
With regards to the safety measures put in place by the university to mitigate the risks of the COVID-19 virus, at this time all MSI systems will remain operational and can be accessed remotely as usual. The only planned outages concern our in-person Helpdesk and tutorials. More information, as well as alternative remote support options, can be found at MSI COVID-19 Continuity Plan

Gaussian performs semiempirical and ab initio molecular orbital (MO), density functional, and molecular mechanics calculations.
To use this program at MSI, please send a request to email@example.com and ask to be added to the Gaussian group. To use Gaussian, you need to be a researcher at the Twin Cities campus.
MSI is in the process of deprecating some older, unused versions of Gaussian. Below is a list of modules that are slated for removal, and for each, a corresponding supported module. If you are using one of the deprecated modules, please transition to the listed supported module.
To view all available Gaussian versions use the command:
module avail gaussian
To load and start Gaussian 09 on Mesabi use the commands:
module load gaussian/g09.e01
qg09 [options] input_file
For a list of options use the command:
To load and start Gaussian 16 on Mesabi use the commands:
module load gaussian
qg16 [options] input_file
If you encounter the error: "qg09: Command not found.", or something similar, you are probably not part of the Gaussian Group. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to be added.
When submitting your job script ensure that the amount of memory you request in your Gaussian script, "%mem", is less than the amount of memory you request in your PBS script, "#PBS -l mem=".
