This page describes the SMB-MC MAD Scripts development project. Beamline users may go to the MAD Scripts Manual for directions on how to use the scripts to solve structures.
The ultimate way to validate a diffraction data collection experiment is to be able to extract meaningful phases from the data. In the particular case of MAD and SAD experiments, where the approach to structure solution is highly systematic, it should be possible to attempt phasing and model building during experimental beam time. The SSRL SMB-MC in-house MAD scripts are developed to facilitate the many steps required for structure solution, hiding the complexities of the software installation on the Macromolecular Crystallography file server and providing automated input to all the programs in the structure solution pipeline with minimal edits by the user.
