I had an excellent description of this program, and how to use it, but somehow it got lost. For the moment, I'm just including some basic tips. I will have to fully document it again later.

This program is used to subdivide particles into two populations based on two different 3-D maps (or, alternatively a 3-D mask). It will also provide some statistical results indicating how well you can discriminate between the two groups on a per-particle basis.

The program is called e2classifyligand.py. If you run it with no options, it will give some basic help, with '-h' it will give more help. Basic usage is :

- First run e2refine for at least a couple of cycles on your data - Prepare 2 volume files the same size as your reconstruction. One with ligand present and one without ligand. If you lack 2 good references, you could take the results of the single refinement from all of the data, copy it, and mask out the ligand from the copy. - run: e2classifyligand.py <raw particle file> <class mx> <projections> --ref1=<unliganded ref> --ref2=<liganded ref>

That's the basic algorithm. If you want to try to put 'bad' (difficult to classify) particles into separate files, you can specify the:
