This algorithm addresses the initial volume problem in SPA by setting it in a Weighted Least Squares framework and calculating the weights through a statistical approach based on the cumulative density function of different image similarity measures.
Computes an initial 3d model from a set of projections/classes using RANSAC algorithm. This method is based on an initial non-lineal dimensionality reduction approach which allows to select representative small sets of class average images capturing the most of the structural information of the particle under study. These reduced sets are then used to generate volumes from random orientation assignments. The best volume is determined from these guesses using a random sample consensus (RANSAC) approach.
This protocol wraps *e2initialmodel.py* EMAN2 program. It will take a set of class-averages/projections and build a set of 3-D models suitable for use as initial models in single particle reconstruction. The output set is theoretically sorted in order of quality (best one is numbered 1), though it's best to look at the other answers as well.

Automated particle picker for SPA. Uses Gautomatch. Gautomatch is a GPU accelerated program for accurate, fast, flexible and fully automatic particle picking from cryo-EM micrographs with or without templates.
ETHAN is a program for automatic detection of spherical particles from electron micrographs. The ETHAN software was written at the Department of Computer Science of University of Helsinki, Finland by Teemu Kivioja.
This protocol runs Relion autopicking (version 2.0+). This Relion protocol uses the 'relion_autopick' program to pick particles from micrographs, either using templates or gaussian blobs. The picking with this protocol is divided in three steps: 1) Run with 'Optimize' option for several (less than 30) micrographs. 2) Execute the wizard to refine the picking parameters. 3) Run with 'Pick all' option to pick particles from all micrographs. The first steps will use internally the option '--write-fom-maps' to write to disk the FOM maps. The expensive part of this calculation is to calculate a probability-based figure-of-merit (related to the cross-correlation coefficient between each rotated reference and all positions in the micrographs. That's why it is only done in an small subset of the micrographs, where one should use representative micrographs for the entire data set, e.g. a high and a low-defocus one, and/or with thin or thick ice. Step 2 uses a much cheaper peak-detection algorithm that uses the threshold and minimum distance parameters.
This protocol wraps SPIDER CL HC command. Finds clusters of images/elements in factor space (or a selected subspace) by using Diday's method of moving centers, and applies hierarchical ascendant classification (HAC) (using Ward's method) to the resulting cluster centers.
This class contains a re-implementation to a method for the localized three-dimensional reconstruction of such subunits. After determining the particle orientations, local areas corresponding to the subunits can be extracted and treated as single particles.
Protocol to refine a 3D map using Relion.Relion employs an empirical Bayesian approach to refinementof (multiple) 3D reconstructionsor 2D class averages in electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM). Manyparameters of a statistical model are learned from the data,whichleads to objective and high-quality results.
Reference-based refinement using SPIDER AP SHC and AP REF commands. Iterative refinement improves the accuracy in the determination of orientations. This improvement is accomplished by successive use of more finely-sampled reference projections. Two different workflows are suggested: with defocus groups or without (gold-standard refinement). For more information, see: [[http://spider.wadsworth.org/spider_doc/spider/docs/techs/recon/mr.html][SPIDER documentation on projection-matching]]
This is a 3D refinement protocol whose main input is a volume and a set of particles. The set of particles has to be at full size (the finer sampling rate available), but the rest of inputs (reference volume and masks) can be at any downsampling factor. The protocol scales the input images and volumes to a reasonable size depending on the resolution of the previous iteration. The protocol works with any input volume, whichever its resolution, as long as it is a reasonable initial volume for the set of particles. The protocol does not resolve the heterogeneous problem (it assumes an homogeneous population), although it is somewhat tolerant through the use of particle weights in the reconstruction process. It is recommended to perform several global alignment iterations before entering into the local iterations. The switch from global to local should be performed when a substantial percentage of the particles do not move from one iteration to the next. The algorithm reports the cross correlation (global alignment) or cost (local) function per defocus group, so that we can see which was the percentile of each particle in its defocus group. You may want to perform iterations one by one, and remove from one iteration to the next, those particles that worse fit the model.
This protocol wraps *e2refine_easy.py* EMAN2 program.This is the primary single particle refinement program in EMAN2.1+.It replaces earlier programs such as e2refine.py and e2refine_evenodd.py.Major features of this program: * While a range of command-line options still exist. You should not normally specify more than a few basic requirements. The rest will be auto-selected for you. * This program will split your data in half and automatically refine the halves independently to produce a gold standard resolution curve for every step in the refinement. * An HTML report file will be generated as this program runs, telling you exactly what it decided to do and why, as well as giving information about runtime, etc while the job is still running. * The gold standard FSC also permits us to automatically filter the structure at each refinement step. The resolution you specify is a target, NOT the filter resolution.
ResMap is software tool for computing the local resolution of 3D density maps studied in structural biology, primarily by cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). Please find the manual at http://resmap.sourceforge.net
This protocol does local resolution estimation using Relion. This program basically performs a series of post-processing operations with a small soft, spherical mask that is moved over the entire map, while using phase-randomisation to estimate the convolution effects of that mask.
