  • Description

    (Collaborative Computational Project for Electron cryo-Microscopy) a software framework and resulting software suite that includes tools for project and data management along with a focus on building and refinement of atomic models into cryo-EM reconstructions. The framework allows easy access to various programs and utilities from collaborators via Python task wrappers and a user-friendly graphical user interface or a command-line interface suitable for scripting.
