  • Description

    a set of programs for macromolecular phasing. SHELXC is designed to provide a simple and fast way of setting up the files for the programs SHELXD (heavy atom location) and SHELXE (phasing and density modification) for macromolecular phasing by the MAD, SAD, SIR and SIRAS methods. hkl2map provides a simple user interface to SHELX and is installed separately. SHELX was written and is actively maintained by George Sheldrick and his group at the University of Gottingen.

    This version of SHELX-97 is now obsolete and has been replaced by SHELX-2013. If you would like SHELX-2013 included in your installation, please see details on how to register here.
