Webserver accepted!
We are proud to publish the first ever data-processing webserver in CEM / CET, localize.pytom.org. The paper was officially accepted in NAR 2015 today.


Update to v0.963
A new round of PyTom updates that made it to a new stable release.

  • New iterative reconstruction workflow, read more about it here
  • Bugfix in local alignment strategy
  • Fixed a problem with wedge rotation
  • Fixed Fourier rescale method
  • New helical symmetry prototype implementation for alignment

Update to v0.962
The newest PyTom update contains the following features

  • More efficient LocalSampling strategy enabled
  • Fixed a temporary speed bottleneck to regain performance
  • Average function and script ( average.py ) now accept a subset of particles
  • XML files will be annotated with current PyTom version
  • Update does not require a recompile

Update to v0.961:

Merry Christmas everyone!

We updated a couple of features for in the current version 0.961:

  • better PDB2EM functionality
  • deleted obsolete functions
  • improved documentation for some functions
  • added detailed instruction for compiling the package on CentOS 6.1
  • no need to recompile if you update through Git

Update to v0.96:

Documentation is now consistent with our tutorial dataset.

Other updates include:

  • FRM is compatible with FFTW3 (no FFTW2 required)
  • Better sequential alignment support
  • Minor package compatibilities improved
  • Documentation slides are available

PyTom won the Heinz-Billing Prize 2013!

PyTom was awarded a scientific software prize 2013 from the Max Planck Society.

Update to v0.953:

Immediate release after the PyTom workshop at the DFKI in Saarbrücken. Contains all bug fixes from the three days long session and some ramped up documentation.

Participants processed Localization, Real-space & FRM Alignment and Classification on their data successfully.

We are currently working on the documentation to release v0.96 along with new tutorial files.

Update to v0.952:

We fixed a couple of bugs since the last version. Get it here.

Recent changes:

  • Renamed angle objects to GlobalSampling (AngleFromFile) and LocalSampling (EquidistantList)
  • Deleted directory entry for particle list objects
  • Documentation of file conversion scripts (em2mrc,…) improved
  • Fixed taper function bug in projection alignment
  • Small things in documentation and tutorial

Update to v0.951:

With 0.951 we added some bug fixes and changes:

  • No global wedge required for alignment jobs, particle wedge will be used during alignment. Make sure it’s set for old particle lists!
  • Particle wedge will be automatically set in extract candidates, particles inherit the tomogram wedge they came from.
  • Moved default repository directory two levels up
  • Taper function issues fixed
  • Reconstruction script fixed for parameter names
  • Fixed compile integration of FRM if no FRM is present

Recent update to v0.95:

Version 0.95 is released on Apr. 18th, 2013, highlighting the new fast subtomogram alignment procedures. Please checkout the latest version at sourceforge!
