CCP4 - A collection of software for computations required for macromolecular crystallography
Version: 6.0.2The Collaborative Computational Project Number 4 in Protein Crystallography was set up in 1979 to support collaboration between researchers working on such software in the UK, and to assemble a comprehensive collection of software to satisfy the computational requirements of the relevant UK groups. CCP4 was originally supported by the UK Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC), and is now supported by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). The project is coordinated at STFC Daresbury Laboratory.All these efforts conducted to the CCP4 program suite, which is now offerd to commercial and academic users all over the world.
Operating System: Mac OS X
CCP4 is overseen by two committees: Working Group 1 meets annually and makes general policy. The PIs of all UK protein crystallography groups are invited to WG1, as well as representatives of the UK-based commercial groups. Working Group 2 meets more frequently and coordinates the developers. There is an Executive Committee comprising the Chairmen of Working Groups 1 and 2, the CCP4 Group Leader and elected individuals from Working Group 1. The Executive Committee oversees the project on a day-to-day basis and reports back to Working Group 1. See the Staff Page for current members of the Executive Committee, and current developers.
