Supported Applications


  • Description

    is a new version of Sparky renamed because NMRFAM has taken over the original Sparky to support advances in the biomolecular NMR field. Tom Ferrin and Tom Goddard of UCSF, generously allowed NMRFAM to develop this the original Sparky, which remains the most popular NMR biomolecular analysis tool available.

  • Usage Notes

    NMRFAM-Sparky is mostly open source, but the CS-Rosetta and PONDEROSA-C/S modules require a license for for-profit users.
