Typical usage

e2boxer_old exists in non-MPI version.

Start the e2boxer_old GUI with a list of micrographs: micrographs_number*


Main Parameters

Input micrographs: Wild cards (e.g. *) can be used to specify a list of micrographs. Not recommended if their number is very large. (default required string)
Box size [Pixels]: Box size for extraction of particle images. (default -1)

Advanced Parameters

Write coordinate files: Write coordinate files. (default False)
Write particle images: Write particle images. (default False)
Exclude edge images: Exclude particles extending outside the micrograph. (default False)
Force overwrite: Force overwrite. (default False)
Particle image format: Format of the output particles images. (default hdf)
Particle normalization: Normalization processor applied to the final particle images. (default normalize.edgemean)
Invert contrast: Invert contrast of micrographs. (default False)
Particle name suffix: Suffix used for the name of the output images and coordinates. (default _ptcls)
Data base list storage: Data base list storage, used by the workflow. (default none)
Swarm_boxers dict key: A key of the swarm_boxers dict in the local directory, used by the workflow. (default none)
Set PPID: Sets the PPID of the process. (default -1)
Dummy option: Dummy option used in even older version of e2boxer_old. (default True)
Verbose: Verbose level. Accepted values 0-9. (default 0)
Sample autoboxed image: Gets the parameters used for autoboxing from the EMANDB. It requires the name of a micrograph used for automatic boxing previously. (default none)
CTF parameters file: Specify name of file whose CTF estimation parameters should be used for automatic CTF estimation. (default none)
Use CTER CTF estimation: CTF estimation using CTER. (default False)
Input directory: Directory containing micrographs to be processed. (default current directory)
Micrograph rootname: Rootname of micrographs to be processed. (default none)
Micrograph type: A string denoting micrograph type. (default none)
Window size: size of window to use. (default 256)
Spherical aberration [mm]: Spherical aberration [mm] used to acquire the input micrographs. (default 2.0)
Microscope voltage [kV]: Microscope voltage [kV] used to acquire the input micrographs. (default 300.0)
Amplitude contrast: Expected amplitude contrast of this dataset. (default 10.0)
kboot: The number of boot-strap trials. (default 16)
Debug mode: Use debug mode. (default False)
Pixel size [A]: Pixel size of the input micrographs. (default -1.0)


The program creates the directory automatically in the micrograph directory.
