The installation instructions depend on whether you are running GelBandFitter from the source code or as a standalone package.

Source Code

If you have downloaded a zipped archive with the source code, extract all the files into a single directory (e.g. c:\GelBandFitter). Then start Matlab (you will need to have Version 2008a or later and the Optimization Toolbox) and open GelBandFitter.m.

Then run the function, for example, by pressing F5.

If you want to modify the source code for your own use, it is advisable to start by copying the original code to a safe place. That will allow you to keep a working copy of the program on your local machine at all times.

Standalone Package
