iMOSFLM: A New Graphical Interface for Diffraction-Image Processing With MOSFLM

Acta Crystallogr D Biol Crystallogr. 2011 Apr;67(Pt 4):271-81. doi: 10.1107/S0907444910048675. Epub 2011 Mar 18.

Abstract

iMOSFLM is a graphical user interface to the diffraction data-integration program MOSFLM. It is designed to simplify data processing by dividing the process into a series of steps, which are normally carried out sequentially. Each step has its own display pane, allowing control over parameters that influence that step and providing graphical feedback to the user. Suitable values for integration parameters are set automatically, but additional menus provide a detailed level of control for experienced users. The image display and the interfaces to the different tasks (indexing, strategy calculation, cell refinement, integration and history) are described. The most important parameters for each step and the best way of assessing success or failure are discussed.
