Docker is not available on CAC or Compute Canada clusters for security reasons. However, you can convert the dockerimage to singularity


module load singularity
singularity build kissplice.sif docker://dwishsan/kissplice-pipeline

This build the image "kissplice.sif" {you can choose another name}.

Once the image is ready, you can use it for your jobs:

module load singularity

singularity exec -B /home -B /project -B /scratch -B /localscratch
/global/home/your_Username/kissplice.sif kissplice {+options and/or argments if any}

For more info, check out the Compute Canada page on using Singularity for QIIME
