Urzhumtseva, L., Urzhumtsev, A. (2011) “A program to analyze the distributions of unmeasured reflections”. J Appl Cryst., 44(4), 865-872

The purpose of the program :

to study the distribution of unmeasured diffraction data. Differently from usual statistics of overall data completeness, the program shows how these reflections are distributed in reciprocal space. The program identifies continuous regions of unmeasured (absent) data and displays the sphere of reciprocal space at a given resolution indicating the measured and unmeasured reflections. Unmeasured reflections can be shown all together or by the continuous regions to which they belong.

pym_convrot was created by Ludmila Urzhumtseva and Alexander Urzhumtsev

Urzhumtseva, L., Urzhumtsev, A. (2019) “py_convrot: rotation conventions, to understand and to apply”. J Appl Cryst., 52, 869-881

The purpose of the program

The programme has a double purpose:

  • Conversion of rotation parameters from one convention to another
  • Teaching of various conventions of rotation parameters

The program is a natural methodologic suite of the program ‘convrot’ while technically it is fully original and written in python. All possible conventions of Euler and polar angles can be used, as well as those in terms of direction cosines and in terms of rotation matrices. Interactive demos for input / output conventions help to understand features of these conventions, their differences and common aspects. The presence of symmetry operations and different choice of the unit cell orthogonalisation can be taken into account. For a list of atoms, defined as a PDB or PDBx/mmCIF file, the program can directly recalculate their coordinates accordingly to the transformation obtained (rotation + translation).

System requirements

The basic version of the programme has been developed for Windows, but it also works under Linux and Mac OS.

The program can be run using independently installed Python (versions 2.6 – 2.7 and 3.7 – 3.8), with the wxPython library. When GUI PHENIX is installed, one can also run the program typing a command: pym2_convrot_270820.py or pym3_convrot_270820.py.

Download (source file in wxPython + help files in .pdf: pym2_convrot.zip or pym3_convrot.zip )

The purpose of the program

The program defines the effective resolution of a set of reflections whatever its completeness is.
By definition, the effective resolution d_effective coincides with the highest resolution, d_high, for any complete data set and is different (usually lower) for an incomplete data set.
For anisotropic data sets both the highest and the lowest resolutions, depending on the direction, are determined. The corresponding directions are also identified.
The program defines also the minimum and maximum optical resolution with the values of the amplitudes / intensities of these reflections

Computer requirements for the software

The basic version of the program was developed for Windows while it runs also under Linux and Mac OS.
The program can be run using independently installed Python ( starting from version 2.6), wxPython and Numpy libraries.
When GUI PHENIX is installed, one can also run the program typing a command: efresol_3_1.py

No installation is required after efresol_3_1.py is downloaded.

Urzhumtseva, L., Urzhumtsev, A. (2016) “COMPaRS : a stand-alone program for map comparison using quantile rank scaling”. J Appl Cryst., 49(6), 2270-2275

The purpose of the program

The program compares two crystallographic or cryoEM maps (Fourier syntheses) calculated in the same set of the grid nodes. The metrics used by the program are inspired by a visual comparison of two such maps. For comparison, each grid node is characterized by its quantile rank which is an intrinsic characteristic of an isosurface and which does not change with any monotonous scaling, linear or not. The calculated discrepancy function shows the normalized difference between the regions chosen in these maps applying the same quantile rank cut-off. The peak correlations show the similarity of the peaks, also scaled in the quantile ranks, inside these selected regions.

The purpose of the program

Shows qualitatively if some models parameters are over- or under-refined compares the model characteristics with those for previously refined models.

The program requires that your computer has the standard Tcl/tk libraries installed (Windows, Linux, MacOSX).

To install the program, put the file polygon0612.tcl in any directory, unzip pdb_2009-04-29_ord.zip files and then look the polygon_readme_2 file.

The third file, polygon_pdb-mvd-examples.zip , contains examples of files that POLYGON can process complementary to the database
