CCP4 exists to produce and support a world-leading, integrated suite of
programs that allows researchers to determine macromolecular structures
by X-ray crystallography, and other biophysical techniques. CCP4 aims to
develop and support the development of cutting edge approaches to
experimental determination and analysis of protein structure, and
integrate these approaches into the suite. CCP4 is a community based
resource that supports the widest possible researcher community,
embracing academic, not for profit, and for profit research. CCP4 aims
to play a key role in the education and training of scientists in
experimental structural biology. It encourages the wide dissemination of
new ideas, techniques and practice.

CCP4 Software Suite
The current version is CCP4 6.5 (18 December 2014).
The new packages include:
- Privateer-validate: validation of carbohydrate structures
- Feckless: combination of multilattice files from Mosflm for Pointless and Aimless
- Acedrg: chemoinformatics support for Refmac
- Blend: optimum selection of multi-crystal datasets for merging
- Crank-2: conceptually redesigned and considerably improved Crank pipeline for automatic experimental phasing
The updated packages include
CCP4MG 2.10.0; and many others.
