Frealix on Biowulf

Frealix is a program for the refinement of helical filament reconstructions from cryo electron micrographs. It is primarily used to process images of amyloid fibrils, though it has also been tested on TMV and actin filaments.


Important Notes

Frealix is a specific tool to be used along with other cryo-EM applications like EMAN2 and RELION

Interactive job
Interactive jobs should be used for debugging, graphics, or applications that cannot be run as batch jobs.

Allocate an interactive session and run the program. Sample session:

[user@biowulf]$ sinteractive
salloc.exe: Pending job allocation 46116226
salloc.exe: job 46116226 queued and waiting for resources
salloc.exe: job 46116226 has been allocated resources
salloc.exe: Granted job allocation 46116226
salloc.exe: Waiting for resource configuration
salloc.exe: Nodes cn3144 are ready for job

[user@cn3144 ~]$ module load frealix
