How to install ClusCo on Ubuntu (Linux)?

ClusCo is a bioinformatics software to perform clustering and comparison of protein models [1]. In this article, we are going to install ClusCo on Ubuntu (Linux).

Preparing system

Let’s update and upgrade our system first.

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Installing prerequisites

You need to install the TCLAP library in order to run ClusCo. Open a terminal by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T and paste the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install libtclap-dev

Downloading ClusCo

Change to the directory where you want to download the software. We are downloading in ‘Downloads‘.

$ cd Downloads/

Download ClusCo from here or use the following command.

$ git clone https://bitbucket.org/mjamroz/clusco.git

Installing ClusCo

Change to the ‘clusco‘ directory and make a new one, namely, build.

$ cd clusco/

$ mkdir build

Now move inside the build directory and install clusco.

$ cd build/

$ cmake ../

$ make

It will take a few minutes to install. You will find an executable file named ‘clusco_cpu‘ inside the build/src directory.

AlphaFill- New algorithm to fill ligands in AlphaFold models.

AlphaFold is a popular artificial intelligence based protein prediction tool [1]. Though it predicts good protein structures, it lacks the capability to predict the small molecules present in the structure such as ligands. For this purpose, AlphaFill is introduced by Hekkelman et al.,[2]. (more…)
