Sir2014 is the latest product of the Sir family, widely used for the crystal structure solution of small/medium size and proteins single-crystal structures using either X-ray or electron diffraction data.
It includes many new features that are described in the program help. Among them:
improved integration with Jav, the new visualizer in 3D;
possibilty to start the program using a shelx file (.ins) as input.
The current version is a standalone package, and can be downloaded separately from the full structure solution suite IL MILIONE. Sir2014 supports the main current operating systems.
Windows: Sir2014 runs on Windows XP/7/8; setup packages are provided for these versions of Windows.
Linux: these packages run on the 32 or 64 bit versions of the main current distributions.
