Developers :  Xavier Siebert  and Jorge Navaza

Last Release : 2.0.2 (August 2008)



New Job opportunities : We are hiring a PhD Student starting in September 2016.
Please contact me for further detail.

What's new ?

  • [2010] A new version of UROX, renamed VEDA, is available on this page (main developer: Gael Goret).
  • [November 2008] This page starts as an attempt to maintain up-to-date information for UROX users, even though it is not my main project anymore.
  • [September 2008] Support for Mac versions was stopped, by decision of JN. Sorry.
  • [Summer 2008] Version 2.* now contains Normal-modes fitting as well as Map/Map fitting (in addition to the 'classical' model/map fitting). 
  • Feedback is welcome !

Overview

UROX  is a software initially designed for interactive fitting of high-resolution models (e.g, obtained by X-Ray crystallography) into Electron Microscopy reconstructions. It can also be used to fit two maps together (e.g., in tomography), or to perform Normal-modes calculations.
