The following UGENE package delivery types are available on 64-bit Linux:

  • Online installer: updates to new versions are supported

Other packages for older UGENE version are available on the web page http://ugene.net/download-all.html.

Information about native installation on Ubuntu and Fedora is provided below.

Installation using online installer

  • Download the online installer file for your platform.
  • Make the file executable - in the Terminal run "chmod +x installer_file_name".
  • Execute the file: "./installer_file_name". For example:

    cd ~/Downloads
    chmod +x ugeneInstaller_64bit
    ./ugeneInstaller_64bit
  • Follow the installation wizard.


On a new UGENE version release, a notification will appear with an option to update the package.

Installation using TAR.GZ archive

  • Download the TAR.GZ archive.

  • Unpack the archive - in the Terminal run "tar -xf archive_file".
  • From the unpacked folder run "./ugene -ui" (here "ui" states for "User Interface"). For example:

    cd ~/Downloads
    tar -xf ugene-current-version-x86-64.tar.gz
    cd ugene-current-version
    ./ugene -ui

On a new UGENE version release, a notification will appear. However, to install the new version, it is required to manually download the package again.
