== 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 author of the program package is Wolfgang Kabsch (Wolfgang dot Kabsch at mpimf-heidelberg dot mpg dot de).
The program is free for academic use, and can be downloaded from http://
www.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de /~kabsch/xds/html_doc/downloading.html (if the download from that site fails, there's a copy at ftp://turn5.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/xds ).
Documentation is at http://
www.mpimf-heidelberg.mpg.de/ ~kabsch/ xds or [http://strucbio.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/~dikay/XDS_html_doc/index.html here].
There is another program available, which serves to produce additional output of tables and plots. This is not part of the official XDS package; its name is [[XDSSTAT]] (written and distributed by Kay Diederichs).
[[XDSGUI]], a graphical user interface, serves to help using XDS.
