Description: Crystallography & NMR System (CNS) is the result of an international collaborative effort among several research groups. The program has been designed to provide a flexible multi-level hierachical approach for the most commonly used algorithms in macromolecular structure determination. Highlights include heavy atom searching, experimental phasing (including MAD and MIR), density modification, crystallographic refinement with maximum likelihood targets, and NMR structure calculation using NOEs, J-coupling, chemical shift, and dipolar coupling data..

Description: An automated comparison of orientations defined as a list or several lists of corresponding Eulerian angles can be performed using the interactive program COMPANG. When calculating the closeness of orientations, this program allows one to take into account the symmetry operations of the space group as well as non-crystallographic symmetry. The similarity of orientations can be considered at a given accuracy, thus allowing a user to identify the groups of close orientations, i.e. their clusters. The size of such clusters can be used as a criterion to choose the correct orientation in difficult cases of molecular replacement.
