GENIE Neutrino Monte Carlo
GENIE is a suite of products (Generator, Comparisons, Tuning) for the experimental neutrino community. It is supported and developed by an international collaboration of scientists. The well-known Generator implements a modern framework for neutrino Monte Carlos and includes state-of-the-art physics modules. The GENIE physics model is universal and comprehensive: It handles all neutrinos and targets, and all processes relevant from MeV to PeV energy scales. The Generator includes several tools (flux drivers, detector geometry navigators, specialized event generation apps, event reweighting engines) to simulate complex experimental setups in full detail and to support generator-related analysis tasks. The GENIE Generator is used by several neutrino experiments and its predictions serve as standard reference points for the neutrino community. The Comparisons product includes extensive curated archives of neutrino, charged-lepton and hadron-nucleus scattering data, as well as software to produce a comprehensive set of data/MC comparisons. Finally, the Tuning product implements a generator tuning framework and includes applications implementing the GENIE tuning procedure.

May 23, 2016: GENIE on DockerHub
Users of Docker can now pull images of GENIE from DockerHub. Just set up Docker and use docker pull gnperdue/genie:latest or docker pull gnperdue/genie:2.10.8 (2.10.6 is also supported). If this proves to be a popular way to run GENIE, we'll create a GENIE organization on DockerHub and try to include more releases there. Note that for development work and production, we recommend building GENIE natively, but for quick studies or tutorials, checkout from Docker might be convenient.
