→What is XDS, and how to obtain it?
XDS is a program package written for the "reduction" of 2-dimensional data images ("frames") obtained from crystals irradiated with monochromatic X-rays. The package mainly consists of the programs [[XDS]] (which processes a single dataset), [[XSCALE]] (for scaling of several datasets) , [[XDSCONV]] (for conversion of output file to other formats) and [[VIEW]] (for visualizing).
The program is free for academic use, and can be downloaded from http://www.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de/~kabsch/xds/html_doc/downloading.html .
Documentation is at http://www.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de/~kabsch/xds .
