Original CoAn command-line software


The name CoAn is derived from the purpose of the software package, that is Correlative AnalysisCoAn was originally designed for correlation-based docking of atomic models into lower-resolution densities generated by electron microscopy and image reconstruction.  The distinguishing factor of the underlying docking methodology is the use of correlation statistics which explicitly accounts for measurement errors through cross-validation and allows the definition of confidence intervals for the rotational and translational parameters, thus defining a solution set of docked models, all of which are compatible with the data within their margin of error. 


Although the main focus of CoAn development today is in the new python framework called pyCoAn, the original software is still available (and check out the CoAn FAQ too).  Modules currently available to the public are:
