what is minirosetta

I saw the word "minirosetta" many many times, but I can not find any program related with minirosetta. What is the different between minirosetta and rostta3? And where can I download the minirosetta? Thank you very much!

minirosetta = rosetta3. We called it mini while it was in development, because it started out a lot smaller than Rosetta++. The Rosetta3 MIE paper ( describes how Rosetta3 came from Rosetta++ (which was Rosetta2).

One of the rosetta3 applications is itself called minirosetta. This is the app that goes out on BOINC for Rosetta@HOME, and was so named to distinguish it from rosetta++ on Rosetta@HOME, but unfortunately some developers are lazy and never gave their code standalone executables, so the only way to access some code is through that minirosetta application.

Thank you very much! That makes lots of sense.
