  • Description

    an image processing framework to obtain 3D models of macromolecular complexes using 3D EM that allows you to execute workflows combining different software tools, while taking care of formats and conversions.

  • Usage Notes

    SCIPION uses software that depends on CUDA 8.0 for GPU acceleration
    SCIPION can use a local directory at /programs/local/scipion/1.0.1/data/tests for test datasets that are too large to include with the software.
    SCIPION can download these automatically, but you (or your local sysadmin) will need to create a directory for them.
    Please email bugs@sbgrid.org if you have questions or problems.
