  • Description

    a graphical user interface for the easy and convenient processing of diffraction data sets using XDS. It is available for all our experimental end-stations. It automates the data processing and generates graphical plots of various data set statistics provided by XDS. By incorporating additional software, further information on certain features of the dataset, such as radiation decay or the presence of pseudo-translational symmetry and/or twinning is provided. Intensity files suitable for CCP4, SHELX and CNS are generated.

    XDSAPP is freely available to non-profit labs, but each lab must register with Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin before we can install the software. To include this software in your installation, please register here licensing@sbgrid.org.

  • Usage Notes

    XDSAPP runs under Linux and needs the installation of Tcl/Tk version 8.4 or newer. You need to have an installation of XDSSTAT (Diederichs, 2006), POINTLESS (Evans, 2006), SFCHECK (Vaguine et al., 1999) and PHENIX.XTRIAGE (Adams et al., 2010). Additionally an installation of gnuplot (at least version 4.0) and ImageMagick (6.2.5 or newer) is needed. The current version of XDSAPP only supports these detectors:

    Rayonics MX-225 MAR165 PILATUS 6M ADSC Quantum Q315r
