X-ray diffraction data processing proceeds through indexing, pre-refinement of camera parameters and crystal orientation, intensity integration, post-refinement and scaling. The DENZO program has set new standards for autoindexing, but no publication has appeared which describes the algorithm. In...
The optimal strategy for collecting X-ray diffraction data from macromolecular crystals is discussed. Two kinds of factors influencing the completeness of data are considered. The first are geometric, arising from the symmetry of the reciprocal lattice and from the experimental setup; they affect...
Charged-coupled device (CCD) detectors have been widely accepted as detectors for collecting X-ray diffraction images. The CCD detector offers a sensitive detection system well suited for diffraction analysis and, compared with other detectors on the market, a relatively rapid system for read-out...
