PMID: 27872255
DOI: 10.1083/jcb.201607099

[…] angles from −60° to 60°. negatives were digitized to produce images with 1.41 nm/pixel. the imod package () was used for rough alignment, with fine alignment and reconstruction performed using the txbr package (). volume segmentation was performed by manual tracing using xvoxtrace (), and reconstructions were visualized using analyze (mayo foundation), synu (), and amira (mercury/tgs) […]

PMID: 25698922
DOI: 10.3389/fncel.2014.00468

[…] series was calculated using the imod package (kremer et al., ). fine alignment of projections and combination of the three tilt series data for the final 3d reconstruction were performed using the txbr reconstruction package (lawrence et al., ). reconstructed volumes were viewed and vesicles segmented using the automated thresholding algorithm in amira (fei visualization sciences group, […]

PMID: 24013648
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1001640

[…] at +/−60° with 1° intervals and a pixel size of 0.5 nm (at 18k). images were captured using a 4k×4k gatan ultrascan 4000 camera. reconstruction was accomplished using a combination of imod and txbr reconstruction packages. rough alignment of the two tilt series was done with imod software package, and fine alignment and reconstruction was done using the txbr package., we are grateful […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0045344

[…] down two times by averaging adjacent pixels so that the final pixel resolution was 2.4 nm. the imod software package was used for the complete image processing unless there were problems, and then txbr software was used to refine the alignment and reconstruction . five nc and five ha mitochondrial volumes were generated. volume segmentation was performed by manual tracing in the planes […]

PMID: 28479932
DOI: 10.1016/j.procs.2012.04.175

[…] users can launch their computation-intensive program easily., the “integrated imaging workflow” actor () encapsulates various software packages in the processing pipeline. those packages, such as txbr, are accessed through a unified protocol for application integration with a kepler workflow engine. txbr is an advanced electron tomography code. this code contains alignment, image correction, […]
