See versions of BUSCO which are available:

$ module avail BUSCO

Load one version into your environment and run it:

Note: BUSCO utilizes Augustus and requires you to make a copy of the Augustus configuration for each of your runs as well as set up an environment variable pointing to it, ie:

$ cp -r /export/apps/augustus/3.2.3/config /var/scratch/aorth-augustus-config
$ export AUGUSTUS_CONFIG_PATH=/var/scratch/aorth-augustus-config
