Carmen's scripts

  • If you have performed a projection matching after downsampling the micrographs by a certain factor, and now want to proceed with a different downsampling factor (eg to use a finer pixel size), you may find the next two shell scripts useful:
    • ScalePos - to write new .pos files according to the new downsampling (so you do not have to pick particles again)
    • ScaleShifts - to reuse angles and shifts found in the previous projection matching run

Alejandro's scripts

  • ReName: recursively rename micrographs and related files so they are prefixed with a number and postfixed with resolution.
