To Get Started

First type:
setup phases (or source /srv/local/bin/phases.set)
This will set your path to include /sgi/local/phases/bin/ which contains the binaries for PHASES programs as well as HKSCAT, PROTIN and GPRLSA described below.

Supplied with the PHASES package are the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center versions of SCATT, PROTEIN and PROLSQ by Hendrickson and Konnert. In this package the programs are called HKSCAT, PROTIN and GPRLSA, respectively. An overview describing these versions is available on-line.

Note: If you publish work done with these programs please cite the following:
