Rosetta is a bioinformatics software for modeling and protein structure analysis . In this article, we are going to install this software on Ubuntu.
Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T. Update and upgrade your system using the following commands:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
To download Rosetta, you need to obtain a license that is free for academic users. Request a license from here.

$ sudo apt-get install -y scons
Change to the directory where you have downloaded the software.
$ cd Downloads/
Extract the downloaded file using the following command.
$ tar xvzf rosetta_src_3.12_bundle.tgz

$ cd rosetta_src_2020.08.61146_bundle/main/source/
