Wolfram Mathematica Site License for BCM

The CIBR Center has obtained a BCM site license for Mathematica for all BCM faculty, students, academic staff, postdocs, and graduate students.

Mathematica is a computational software program used in scientific, engineering, and mathematical fields as well as other areas of computing. The Mathematica software is available for Linux, Macintosh, and Windows on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.

To install Mathematica utlizing the BCM Site license, you must use your BCM email address to receive an activation key.

Mathematica can be installed on:

  • Faculty/staff/postdocs/students BCM-owned machines
  • Faculty/staff/postdoc personally owned machines
  • Students' personally owned machines

Mathematica 8 at Baylor College of Medicine - Installation instructions and helpful links PDF - Review the preceding PDF for the procedures on how to download the software and receive an activation key

Contact Wolfram Support at 1-800-WOLFRAM, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Central Time, or email for any product related questions or problems.
