  • Description

    a data processing suite for X-ray crystallography that provides a sleek interface for devising a data collection strategy and processing data. HKL is based on the extended versions of Denzo, Xdisplayf and Scalepack. HKL was developed and is maintained by Wladek Minor (University of Virginia).

  • Usage

    To list all executables provided by HKL2000, run: $ sbgrid-list hkl2000 Copy to clipboard
  • Usage Notes

    SBGrid supports installation of HKL2000, but users must have an active license from the developer. To enable the SBGrid installation for HKL2000, copy the license file to the directory /usr/local/lib on each machine and HKL2000 will work.

    The default directory for detector profiles is $HOME/hklint. To override this default and use your own detector profiles, set the HKLPATH variable to the directory containing your detector profiles after sourcing an SBGrid shell initialization file.

    The HKLPATH line will override the defaults for your site.

  • Installation

    Use the following command to install this title with the CLI client: $ sbgrid-cli install hkl2000 Copy to clipboard Available operating systems: Linux 64, OS X INTEL
