[…] (or 3.5 ē Å−2 per frame). Images in the stack were aligned using the whole image motion correction method described in ref. . Particles (159,000) were picked automatically using the in-house software gEMpicker and the contrast transfer function of every image was determined using CTFFIND4 (ref. ) in the RELION workflow. For the first steps of refinement, images were coarsened by 2 (C2 images) and […]

[…] erence-free classification in RELION to produce representative two-dimensional (2D) class averages that were used as cross-correlation references for automated particle picking in all frames with the gEMpicker software. The full data set was then partitioned in 2D using RELION to eliminate images containing contamination or bad particles. Structure refinement was done in RELION using a starting mo […]
