  • Description

    an automated structure solution pipeline built around the heavy-atom refinement and phasing program SHARP, the substructure determination program SHELXD, the density modification program SOLOMON and the model building programs BUCCANEER and ARP/wARP. It allows fully automated structure solution by experimental phasing, from merged reflection data to an initial model, without any user intervention.

  • Usage Notes

    SHARP/autoSHARP is installed on our server at Harvard Medical School. Please email accounts@sbgrid.org to gain access.

    autoSHARP is also available from the command-line or through the CCP4i interface if users install the software in their home lab. This software in included for all academic labs automatically, but users must request a license at https://www.globalphasing.com/sharp/ then copy the license file to /programs/local/autosharp/autosharp_license. Once the license file is in place the software will start working.
