Averaging of subtomograms
Averaging of subtomograms means applying an available set of alignment parameters onto a set of data particles and adding them together. Because of the missing wedge, a compensation in the Fourier space is operated during this step.
Through the command line
Inside an alignment project
At the end of each iteration, the refined table generated by Dynamo is used to produce an average, which will be used as starting template in the next iteration.
There are different project parameters that can be used to modify the default behaviour of the daverage command used inside an alignment project.
It is possible to select the number of cores that will be used during the averaging. The project parameter is called matlab_workers_average (shortform mwa), and can be modified also in dcp GUI (in the section of environment variables).
This option is available for computations on a single server with several cores. It will not work for the current MPI implementation.
