Tomogram-table map file
A tomogram table map file is a text file with extension .doc that shows the names of the tomogram files referred by a table in its column 20 (reserved for this goal).
An example file could be:
1 /Users/casdanie/test/tomogram_01.mrc 2 /Users/casdanie/test/tomogram_02.mrc 5 /Users/casdanie/test/tomogram_03.mrc
to go along with a table that has only values 1, 2 and 5 in its column 20.
Producing tomograp-table map files
Such files are created automatically during particle extraction through the catalogue. In the data folder created by Dynamo as result of an extraction, you should get a file called indices_column20.doc with this format.
They are regular text files and can be normally edited. The only restriction is that they are expected to have the extension .doc
Using tomograp-table map files
These files can be used to directly crop particles from set of tomograms without entering into the catalogue system. You can use the dtcropcommand with the syntax:
dtcrop <tomogram-table map file> <tablefile> <sidelength> <target folder>
(and the additional flags you may require).
