Note that EMAN2 is still in alpha-testing. It can do some useful things, but is not completely stable yet. EMAN2 is the successor to [[EMAN1]]. It is a broadly based greyscale scientific image processing suite with a primary focus on processing data from transmission electron microscopes. EMAN's original purpose was performing single particle reconstructions (3-D volumetric models from 2-D cryo-EM images) at the highest possible resolution, but the suite now also offers support for single particle cryo-ET, and tools useful in many other subdisciplines such as helical reconstruction, 2-D crystallography and whole-cell tomography. EMAN2 is capable of processing very large data sets (>100,000 particle) very efficiently (up to 20x faster than EMAN1).

==== About EMAN2 ====
EMAN2 is not (yet) a replacement for EMAN1, but can enhance EMAN1's capabilities.
It was designed so both EMAN1 and EMAN2 can be installed in the same user account with
no conflicts. All EMAN2 programs, including GUI programs are written in the easy-to-learn
Python scripting language. This permits knowledgable
end-users to customize any of the code with unprecendented ease. If you aren't an advanced
user, you can still make use of all of EMAN2's command-line programs, all of which start
with 'e2'. Any programs in EMAN2 with an EMAN1 equivalent are likely substantially improved
over their EMAN1 equivalents. For example e2pdb2mrc.py is ~10x faster than the
EMAN1 pdb2mrc.

== About EMAN2 ==
EMAN2 is the successor to [[EMAN1]]. It is a broadly based greyscale scientific image processing suite with a primary focus on processing data from transmission electron microscopes. EMAN's original purpose was performing single particle reconstructions (3-D volumetric models from 2-D cryo-EM images) at the highest possible resolution, but the suite now also offers support for single particle cryo-ET, and tools useful in many other subdisciplines such as helical reconstruction, 2-D crystallography and whole-cell tomography. Image processing in a suite like EMAN differs from consumer image processing packages like Photoshop in that pixels in images are represented as floating-point numbers rather than small (8-16 bit) integers. In addition, image compression is avoided entirely, and there is a focus on quantitative analysis rather than qualitative image display.

All EMAN2 programs, including GUI programs, are written in the easy-to-learn Python scripting language. This permits knowledgeable end-users to customize any of the code with unprecedented ease. If you aren't an advanced user, you can still make use of the integrated GUI and all of EMAN2's command-line programs.
