September 2007
SHARING OPTIONS:

HILLSBORO, Ore.FEI and The Scripps Research Institute have announced that the Leginon software system, used for automated control and image acquisition from a transmission electron microscope (TEM), will now be available to the global scientific community as open source code. The Leginon software was developed by Scripps with funding from the National Center for Research Resources of the National Institutes of Health and has been marketed by FEI since 2003. It is most often used for single-particle analysis, where three-dimensional models of nanoscale particles are created.
"We are pleased to have worked with the Scripps Research Institute for many years on the Leginon program, and we are happy to make the Leginon software available under an open-source license," says Matt Harris, vice president of FEI's NanoBiology division. "The widespread availability of this proven and highly functional software will accelerate scientific discovery and development in life sciences for many years to come."
