- Authors and contributions
autoBUSTER is a framework and collection of
tools, intended for refining structures with the latest version of the
BUSTER-TNT refinement program in conjunction with the geometry
tool for generating restraint dictionaries, and
collection of tools for manipulating restraint dictionaries.
autoBUSTER handles a variety of cases typical for macromolecular refinement:
- protein structures with or without ligands or co-factors
- DNA and RNA structures
- high- and low-resolution structures
- presence of non-crystallographic symmetry
- TLS parameterisation
- already well-refined structures or structures near the beginning
of the refinement process
The main source of documentation for autoBUSTER is the BUSTER wiki.
If you have questions or problems, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The tools, scripts and programs that make up the autoBUSTER
framework are developed by: G. Bricogne,
C. Flensburg, P. Keller, W. Paciorek, A. Sharff, O. Smart, C. Vonrhein,
T. Womack with contributions from former group members E. Blanc
M. Brandl and P. Roversi.
The writing of BUSTER was started in 1989 by Gerard Bricogne.
Subsequent contributions, including the interfacing of BUSTER to
TNT, have come from John Irwin (1994 - 1998), Pietro Roversi
(1995 - 2003), Clemens Vonrhein (since 1998), Eric Blanc (1998 -
2003), Maria Brandl (2004 - 2009), Wlodek Paciorek (since 2004),
Claus Flensburg (since
2000), Oliver Smart (since 2004), Thomas Womack (since 2007) and
Andrew Sharff (since 2009).
The writing of GELLY was started by Oliver Smart in May 2004,
with further contributions from Claus Flensburg (since December
2004) and Thomas Womack (since 2007).
The writing of the MakeTNT toolkit was developed by Maria Brandl
between 2004 to 2009.
