10 Image Refinement Classic method EMAN method common-lines
Fourier-Bessel reconstruction EMAN method projection matching direction Fourier inversion reconstruction

11 Icosahedral Reconstruction Using EMAN
EMAN now supports icosahedral reconstruction User interface is essentially the same as for other symmetries A few points special for large virus aimed at high resolution: projections at <1° step can use > 1GB memory, add “projbatches=<n>” with n>1 to refine half 3-D map can be used for large 3-D map (>5003) 3-D reconstruction use only single CPU. can take several hours to reconstruction a large 3-D map. working on parallel version support mixed platform processing

12 Cross Common Line Intersection of two planes in Fourier space
From Z. Hong Zhou’s dissertation, p36

13 Orientation  Common Line Locations
Fourier plane normal in 3D: common line in 3D: common line in 2D: ref raw

14 Orientation Determination By Common Line Search
search for the orientation and center parameters that minimize the mean phase differences among all the pairs of common lines

15 Search Strategy Original Fortran implementation (Crowther et al)
center the particle by cross-correlation self common line to get a starting orientation by exhaustive searching orientation in 1° step cross common line to do local refinement of orientation and center by Gradient or Simplex.

16 Search Strategy Exhaustive cross common line search
enumerate all centers and orientations in an asymmetric unit simple but really slow for 1 degree, 1 pixel step: 3X107 trials/particle 784*360*10*10 =2.82X107 trials/particle

17 Search Strategy A new global optimization algorithm
hybrid Monte Carlo and Simplex global search for both orientation and center complicated, but accurate and fast ~4x103 trials/particle. >104 times faster than exhaustive search

18 Is The Best Solution Correct?
Absolute score (residual) cutoff dominant criterion needs different cutoff values for images at different defocuses how to pick a single number that suits all imaging conditions?

19 Is The Best Solution Correct?
Z score cutoff better, less sensitive to defocus unstable for very small defocus (<1μm) 3.5 0.0 0.5 residual μ safe range x

20 Is The Best Solution Correct?
Consensus cutoff agreement among different methods (projection matching vs. common line) agreement among multiple runs of the global common line search more reliable than absolute value and Z-score cutoff bias toward “safer side”
