CCP4 Study Weekend 2003



  • Reads protein sequences in SwissProt format either stored locally or when downloaded from a specified database. This sequence can then be edited for future use.

  • Will be expanded further to include sequence alignment functions for model building.

  • Author: Pryank Patel, CCP4

Ccp4 libraries
CCP4 Libraries

  • Full functionality of CCP4 Libraries in C and C++

  • Legacy applications will still work!

  • Library calls can be used directly from scripts.

  • Faster development of software.

  • Many existing applications being translated into C and C++

Program developments phaser
Program developments: PHASER

Independent development of Randy Read and co-workers.

Maximum likelihood methods for SIR/MIR, SAD/MAD and MR accounting for pairwise correlations between datasets.

Fully integrated program for experimental phasing and molecular replacement, including heavy atom location.

To be included in CCP4, and ccp4i interface being developed.



The core of this project is to bring together the efforts of most of the major European software developers for X-ray crystallography towards achieving the goal of making the procedure of structure solution more effective, in terms of using more powerful algorithms to solve, refine and validate structures. The software should not only be as transparent as possible to the end user, but also assist in the case of user inexperience.
