A virtual environment is an area to work in that is associated with certain tools and versions.
It is often useful to work on different bioinformatics analyses or tasks in different virtual environments, as they may rely on particular versions of tools.
One way to set this up is to use a package manager called conda.
1/ Install miniconda
2/ Set up the bioconda channel
More information: https://bioconda.github.io/
conda config --add channels defaults conda config --add channels bioconda conda config --add channels conda-forge
3/ Create new environment
conda create --name mrbayes
4/ Activate new environment (before installing the tool).
conda activate mrbayes
5/ Then install a tool
conda install mrbayes

6/ Deactivate the environment
