[phenixbb] Phenix Xtriage label error

Hi Alex,


You need to look at you anomalous signal in the aimless.log output to see if there was a detectable anomalous signal. You can also force iMosflm to treat the dataset as having an anomalous signal so that it won’t merge your intensities.


Soaking does not guarantee that you will have an anomalous signal in your crystal and you may need to do a multiple crystals with increasing soak time to get an anomalous signal. You can easily do this by soaking the crystal and checking a few frames on your in-house source. Process the frames and see if an anomalous signal is detected.


Good luck!

Dear Phenixbb members,


I have a data-set of a 8 kDa protein crystal around 2.5A resolution. The protein crystal was soaked in potassium iodine before collecting data using in-house beam (1.54A wavelength). As I expected some anomalous signal from the iodine ion from the crystal, after I use Imosflm to index, integrate and scale the data (space group P3). I got four output .mtz files: pointless_XXX.mtz; aimless_xxx.mtz; ctruncate_xxx.mtz; ctruncate_xxx-unique.mtz. After I check with viewHKL, I found the only unmerged mtz data is pointless_XXX.mtz, the other three mtz files are merged. 


The next step I tried to use Phenix Xtriage (Linux version 1.10.1) to check my mtz data for anomalous completeness, I thought in this step my mtz should be unmerged type to see the anomalous signal, so I chose "pointless_xxx.mtz" as Xtriage input, but for the data labels in the Xtriage GUI panel, I can only have two choices of "I, SIGI, Merged" and "IPR, SIGIPR, Merged", it seems I do not have a choice of an unmerged mtz label. I decide to leave this choice blank by choosing data labels"---". After I click "run", Xtriage gave an error "please select labels for input data". 


Any input on this issue? 


Thanks in advance.
