Please have a look at the Nilges group homepage for updates and more
information on the installation:
ARIA consists of four main parts:
1. Python scripts to convert the data from different file formats, create
tree, start the CNS protocols and control the overall program flow. You
need to install a Python interpreter together with the Numerical Python
module in order to use ARIA. All the Python files can be found in the aria1.2/Aria
subdirectory (Aria is a Python package).
2. Perl cgi scripts for saving the data from the browser interface
scripts from the CNS distribution). There scripts have to be moved from
to the cgi-bin directory of your
www server. Then you can access them from within the ARIA html setup. You
need a Perl executable running on your www server.
Alternatively, you can use the cgi scripts which are installed at the Institut Pasteur in Paris.
3. CNS protocols for the calibration, merging, Cartesian or Torsion MD,
waterrefinement, analysis protocols, etc.
These protocols can be edited for your purposes. They are
designed for the automated approach within ARIA. If you want to use them as
stand-alone CNS protocols, you have to edit them slightly.
All the CNS protcols can be found in aria1.2/protocols subdirectory.
They are copied to each run of your project automatically.
4. The CNS executable (compiled from the CNS 1.2 and ARIA 1.2
fortran source code).
