			 DICROPROT software for Windows
		      by Gilbert Deleage (deleage at ibcp.fr)

Don't hesitate to contact me in case of problems, bugs or suggestions.

This DICROPROT program is designed to predict the secondary structure of
proteins from their experimental circular dichroism spectra. The program
allows to fit experimental data with different kinds of models. The program
is only compatible with the Jobin Yvon ASCII files but a way to input user
data in a very simple format (*.DIC) is also given. The program is
distributed with no warranty of success.

Main features:
-------------
		  - Up to 15 spectra are superimposable
		  - Baseline or concentration corrections
		  - Jobin-Yvon ASCII files support (load and save)
		  - Fully graphic and interactive sizable window and cursor
		  - Printing outputs, clipboard copy
		  - BMP files generated
		  - Spreadsheet for measuring ellipticities at the cursor
		    position and transfer into a grapher (lines, dots,
		    histograms,...)

Associated program: The Johnson method (variable selection) is included
		    into the package and a graphical interface is
		    provided.(anonymous ftp to ucs.orst.edu)

		    circular dicroism : a practical guide (Proteins, 7,
		    205-214)

		    selection method improves the preidction of
		    secondary structure from circualr dichroism spectra

	 DICROPROT requirements:
		   - About 3Mo of disk space
		   - 8Mo RAM welcome. Windows 3.1 or 95 (16bit mode)


Installation
------------

	  All the .EXE files must be FTP'ed in binary format.

	1)  Get dicro.exe in binary mode
	2)  Execute dicro.exe (self extracting archives)
	3)  Remove dicro.exe after exploding the files to recover disk
	    space.
	4)  Launch dicropro.exe
