Clipper libraries for experimental structural biology data

Project description

Clipper-Python is a Python interface to the C++ Clipper library developed by Kevin Cowtan for handling of macromolecular crystallography and EM data. It provides high-level, pythonic access to most of the fast objects and functions provided by Clipper for:

  • handling reciprocal-space reflection and map data;
  • handling real-space map data;
  • handling crystallographic symmetry; and
  • input/output of map data in standard real- and reciprocal-space formats.

If you use Clipper Python, please read and cite this paper:
