Cppxfel Final Merge
The final merge in cppxfel is carried out in order to choose the final rejection criteria and recalculate the sigmas so that they better reflect the precision of individual reflections. This is carried out after post-refinement and is the final stage in generating a suitable MTZ file.
Contents of merge.txt
The contents of
cppxfel.input_gen can be displayed.
ORIENTATION_MATRIX_LIST merge-orientations.dat MATRIX_LIST_VERSION 2.0 INITIAL_MTZ allMerge5.mtz OUTLIER_REJECTION_SIGMA 1.6 MERGE_ANOMALOUS OFF RECALCULATE_SIGMA ON CORRELATION_THRESHOLD 0.9 COMMANDS MERGE
This uses the file allMerge5.mtz calculated using in the previous stage, and the merge-orientations.dat list which refer to the refined MTZ files (
ref-img*.mtz) generated by post-refinement. This will produce a final merge and associated merging statistics.
MERGE_ANOMALOUS is set to
ON then an anomalous data set will be generated instead of a normal merge.
Output of merge.txt
In the output of merge.txt the correlations in each indexing hand are displayed for each image. The log file ends with new merging statistics. The correlation coefficient can be heavily altered due to the new recalculated sigma values and may appear less high than one would like. If in doubt, plot the intensities of the half-data sets against each other as explained in cppxfel statistics to confirm their successful correlation.
The two halves of the data set are output to
half2Merge.mtz, and the final merged data set will be output to
remerged.mtz, which should be used in further structure solution. If the merge was set to merge anomalous information, then the appropriate file will be saved as
