SIRAH 2.0 is available to download!

A major update of the force field is available to download!

SIRAH 2.0 is more accurate and easy to use than before. This release includes a reviewed set of bonded and non-bonded parameters for proteins, which highly improves the hydrophilic/hydrophobic balance of the residues and the conformational description of a set of structures. The mapping compatibility was expanded to GROMACS, GROMOS, CHARMM and OPLS force fields. SIRAH 2.0 also runs native on AMBER 14 or later.

The preprint version of the submitted work is available at BioRxiv [https://doi.org/10.1101/436774]

The SIRAH packages were renamed to include the version number describing series, year and month of release (e.g. x2_18-09 stands for SIRAH 2.0 September 2018), so users can easily check for new uploads. In a similar sense, all tutorials were updated and a FAQs document was included.
