// Create a Singularity image from a Docker image that is in the Docker hub

#Creating a singularity image from a docker image in docker hub:
singularity pull docker://elowy01/variant_filtering
# Then, we see that there will be a new file named file.simg containing the pulled image
# and we can run the pulled container by doing:
singularity run file.simg
#building a prebuilt docker image:
singularity build variant_filtering.simg docker://elowy01/variant_filtering
#where 'variant_filtering.simg' is the name that will be given to the image file
# Print all running container instances
singularity instance.list
#running a certain image
singularity run docker://elowy01/variant_filtering
# open an interactive shell using a certain image
singularity shell variant_filtering.simg
