EMAN2 Concepts and Conventions
Modular functions in EMAN2
Many aspects of EMAN2 are modular, meaning new functions can be easily added for a variety of tasks. These categories are used in the GUI and from the command-line, and are not just useful for programmers. For example, the '--process' option in e2proc2d.py and e2proc3d.py uses 'processors' as defined below.
Processors - Filters, masks and other basic image processing operations
Comparators (cmp) - Similarity metrics (cmp) for comparing two images/volumes
Aligners - Algorithms for aligning one image/volume to another
Averagers - Methods for averaging many images/volumes together
Projectors - Generate 2-D projections of 3-D volumes (or 1-D projections of 2-D images)
Reconstructors - Generate 3-D volumetric reconstructions from sets of 2-D images and orientation paramters
Analyzers - Perform various analyses on sets of images/volumes
Symmetries - Permissible symmetries to use in EMAN2
Orientation Generators (orientgen) - Methods for generating sets of orientations filling an asymmetric unit
