I had been using Linuxbrew as my package manager on an HPC cluster where I do not have root access. Of lately, there seems to be some issue with perl and python env. setup and my jobs on nodes other than the head node keep crashing ex. Illegal instruction error for softwares written in python. Upon contacting the cluster administrator, he suggested me to switch to conda/bioconda instead which seems to be working great for other people.

My question is -- What do I need to be mindful of while making the switch from Linuxbrew to Bioconda?

Given that I have everything from perl, python to gcc and all of my bioinformatics software installed currently via linuxbrew, I do not want to break everything and then struggle for days.

You don't have to be mindful of anything. Just give it a try.
