Software Description
Software Description: 

Python is a high level programming language that aims to combine remarkable power with very clear syntax. Its success in these areas has led to strong adoption by the scientific community, resulting in numerous math, physics, chemistry, and biology libraries being contributed from the community of users.

Software Updates and Version Consistency

MSI must make periodic updates to our existing Python installations in order to support the latest features available in the language, and for compatibility with other Python-supported software. In order to maintain a consistent Python environment, users are encouraged to use the conda tool available in the Anaconda Python distribution to clone the desired environment into their home directory. Environments cloned in this way will not be updated by MSI and are therefore suitable for use in applications that require a static Python environment. Instructions for cloning a Python environment can be found on MSI’s Anaconda Python software page.
