Use Orientation Diagnostics output to set fit resolution?


As I understand it in NU-refine currently, the resolution range used for fitting in the subsequent iteration is set by the GS-FSC at a threshold of 0.143.

This is fine if the resolution is directionally isotropic, but can I think lead to overestimated resolution in the presence of preferred orientation. Now that orientation diagnostics is calculated on the fly at each iteration, would it be possible to use this instead to set the fit resolution?

E.g., after the whole dataset is seen, could we use the resolution cutoff in the worst direction for fitting in the subsequent iteration?



Seconded; having this as an option would be great.


That is a very good idea!

Thanks for the suggestion @olibclarke! Very interesting idea – we’ve noted it!
