Publication History

Published Online:


The direct-methods program SnB provides an efficient means for solving protein substructures containing many heavy-atom sites (current record: 160). In order to meet the high-throughput requirements of structural genomics projects, substructure determination needs to be tightly integrated with other aspects of the protein-phasing process. This has been accomplished through the design of a common Java interface, BnP, for SnB and components of PHASES, a popular and proven program suite that provides all the tools necessary to proceed from substructure refinement to the computation of an unambiguous protein electron-density map. Therefore, BnP will facilitate a high degree of automation and enable rapid structure determination by both experienced and novice crystallographers.
