  • Description

    programs for cryo-tomography tilt-series alignment and subsequent tomographic reconstruction that take into consideration beam-induced sample motion, modeled by means of polynomial surfaces. TomoAlign comprises: 1) tomoalign, for alignment, to determine the basic parameters of the images (rotation, magnification, tilt) along with the polynomial coefficients that model the motion; 2) tomorec to calculate the tomogram from the tilt-series and takes into account the motion estimated during the alignment; 3) auxiliary programs to analyze, transform, or scale the motion parameters.
