The scope of this talk is to cover the relationship of Mosflm to CCP4, simple processing of oscillation images with Mosflm using the Graphical User Interface (GUI), then to show how data collection itself can be improved by use of the STRATEGY option. Following this, use of command-line controls will be demonstrated, and the differences between the two modes of running Mosflm discussed. Finally, straightforward scaling and merging with SCALA will be dealt with, via the ccp4i GUI.
Mosflm is available free of charge to the end user; it has all necessary functionality to process diffraction images obtained on a wide variety of different detectors, and runs on all common UNIX-based computers used in crystallographic laboratories. A version which will run under Windows is currently under development.
