nCNS: Computational Tools for Macromolecular Neutron Crystallography

Computational Tools for Macromolecular Neutron Crystallography (MNC), a consortium between Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBL), was created to address the urgent need for new computational tools and methods to deal with the increasing number of neutron macromolecular structures to be determined and their increasing size and complexity. To that end, a patch, designated nCNS, for the existing structure solution program called CNSsolve has been developed which combines, for the first time, global X-ray, neutron and energy refinement with cross-validated maximum likelihood simulated annealing refinement. nCNS can therefore be used in an interoperable way for X-ray, neutron or joint X-ray and neutron analyses.
