FINDNCS
Entered: Mon Oct 13 9:26:30 DFT 1997
Operating systems: Unix, Irix, OSF1.
Type: Binary.
Languages: Fortran.
Distribution: Free academic
Application fields: Biology, Graphics, visualization, virtual reality, Structure determination.
Description: FINDNCS is a program which automatically find out NCS operations from heavy atom sites, in order to help applying averaging technique in the MIR procedure. The program outputs the NCS operations (a rotation matrix and translation vector), RMS, polar angles and screw distance, matching sites and other useful information for users. Optinally, the program can also generate some files so that NCS operations can be displayed by the O program automatically.
