Welcome to Pronto!

This home page will give you some background information about the Pronto/3D2 program.

Background

The Pronto program originally started more than five years ago as a joint project between CRI, Bruker, and Carlsberg A/S. The first version, released in 1992, supported analysis of 2D spectra only. This version was sold as a commercial product by Pronto Software, Development and Distribution. Later, a 3D version of the program was released. This was made after a major redesign of the data base and the user interface. The program supports analysis of 2D, 3D, and 4D NMR spectra.

Today's version of the program, Pronto 3D2, is named so because you can analyse multidimensional spectra as well as display 3D protein structures. This version is made available, free of charge, from Carlsberg Laboratory - both to academic and profit institutions.
