  • 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

    To list all executables provided by SHARP/autoSHARP, run: $ sbgrid-list sharpautosharp Copy to clipboard
  • Usage Notes

    autoSHARP is available from the command-line or through the CCP4i interface. 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_licence. The '/programs/local/autosharp' directory can be created if it does not exist. Note the UK spelling for 'licence'. Once the license file is in place the software will start working.

  • Installation

    Use the following command to install this title with the CLI client: $ sbgrid-cli install sharpautosharp Copy to clipboard Available operating systems: Linux 64, OS X INTEL
