    A. How to obtain the source code for the Beta-Gaussian Model

    The source code of the programme which implements the Beta-Gaussian Model is made freely available for academic use. To obtain the code (provided "as is", with no support!) please send an e-mail request to

    The details of the Beta Gaussian Model and its efficiency for identify the large-scale structural changes induced in proteins by thermal fluctuations are discussed in the following article:
