Three-dimensional reconstruction of ribosome particles from electron micrographs requires selection of many single-particle images. Roughly 100,000 particles are required to achieve approximately 10 A resolution. Manual selection of particles, by visual observation of the micrographs on a computer screen, is recognized as a bottleneck in automated single-particle reconstruction. This paper describes an efficient approach for automated boxing of ribosome particles in micrographs. Use of a fast… CONTINUE READING
