Frealign is a program for high-resolution refinement of 3D reconstructions from cryo-EM images of single particles, originally developed at the MRC/LMB. It is now developed and maintained by the Grigorieff lab at Brandeis.
The main Frealign documentation can be found here.
2) Move the Frealign tar file to your desired installation location
- ex. mv frealign_v8.09_######.tar.gz /home/username/
3) Untar Frealign: tar -xvf frealign_v8.09_######.tar.gz
4) In your .bashrc, include the command:
- export PATH=/home/username/frealign_v8.09/bin:$PATH
5) Frealign is ready to be run. From the command line:
6) Note: the frealign_v8.exe you downloaded is a 64 bit Linux executable.
- If you are running a 32 bit Linux, you have to compile a 32 bit version of frealign by yourself. The compilation of frealign is pretty simple and straight forward. First, make sure you have gfortran installed for your system, then:
cd /home/username/frealign_v8.09/src make -f Makefile_linuxIt will compile a new frealign_v8.exe and replace the old one.
OSX: Since the Mac doesn't come with a Fortran compiler, we include a binary courtesy of Chuck Sindelar in Dr. Grigorieff's lab.
2) chmod a+x the frealign executable if it is not already execute permissed
3) move frealign to a folder in your path or add this to your .profile
- export PATH=/place_you_put_frealign:$PATH
- example: export PATH=/Applications/frealign_mp_2256:$PATH
Windows: Dr. Grigorieff has kindly made a windows executable available for download, since establishing a Fortran build environment on Windows is not for the faint of heart.
