WARNING: this is an archive page that mostly reflects my research activities at the University of Maryland, Baltimore up to the end of 2015.
A notable exception is my CGenFF section, which is hosted on this site (mackerell.umaryland.edu) for the time being.

Automatic parameter fitting
Version 0.9.1 beta of the lsfitpar program for robust fitting of bonded parameters is available under the Affero GPL. The two most straightforward ways to obtain it are:
In both cases, this yields (among other things) a README file with further instructions. Also included in the repository is an examples subdirectory containing a tutorial that guides the reader through the practical aspects of bonded parameter fitting and the different features of the lsfitpar program, and a scripts subdirectory with handy helper scripts (the tutorial explains their usage). We hope this material will be helpful to your research, and appreciate feedback; see the e-mail link in the page header.
- Download a binary distibution. The binaries below are tested on Debian 7 "Wheezy" and newer, Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" and newer, and Ubuntu 14.04 "Trusty" and newer. They should also work on reasonably new versions of other (rpm-based) distributions, but this has not been tested.
- Download the source from GitHub by going to https://github.com/kennovo/lsfitpar, clicking on the "Download ZIP" button to your right, and extracting the resulting file into an appropriate directory.
