Title: Automated data collection


1
Automated data collection
Peter Zwart Berkeley Center for Structural
Biology Physical Biosciences Division, LBL

Automated data collection
  • Screening of crystals is a typical task that can
    be (semi) automated, especially when a robot is
    used.
  • The benefits of automated screening primarily lie
    in
  • Efficiency in screening
  • Reduction of human errors in repetitive tasks
  • Tracking the results
  • DCS already had/has quite a number of
    sophisticated tools that allow HTP screening and
    collection
  • It however lacks fully automated analyses of
    images and has other drawbacks
  • The WebIce server allows an automated
    characterization of X-ray images via an analyses
    done with the Labelit suite (indexing, automated
    image quality, point group assignment)

Automated data collection
  • As part of a major BOS upgrade, Nick Sauter, Yun
    Zhou, John Taylor, Paul Adams and myself have
    been working on implementing automated screening
    and data collection facilities in BOS.
  • Key ingredients
  • A data base that holds user provided sample
    information (which crystals in which puck in
    which position)
  • An external server providing data analyses
  • Indexing, diffraction quality, resolution
    estimates, data collection strategy
  • Automated crystal centering software (XREC)
  • BOS
  • Gyorgy Snell Josh Stillwell

in Puck)

Automated crystal centering
  • XREC is used for automated crystal centering
  • It works well on 5.0.1
  • 5.0.3 has some lighting issues that need to be
    addressed
  • Auto centering is a two stage procedure
  • Finding and centering the loop in low mag
  • Finding and centering the crystal in the loop in
    high mag
  • An iterative approach is used and is relatively
    robust
  • Automated centering usually takes less than 90
    seconds
  • Manual centering is still faster though

6
The new interface
  • Center/Robot Tab
  • Maps puck name to robot dewar position
  • Familiar centering interface
  • Log window Shows all what happens
  • A light version of the logfile (with mounting,
    unmounting etc info) will be available in the
    near future
  • A scoring tab allows efficient manual
    classification of diffraction quality

7
The new interface
  • TasqQueue Tab
  • The interface between the database and the BOS
    user
  • Search for puck names and add the crystals /
    pucks to the Queue
  • Decide in which SIL (Sample Information List) you
    want WebIce to store the results of the analyses
  • Start the data collection by pressing START

8
The new interface
  • After starting the Queue, crystals will be
    mounted
  • User will center crystal
  • or XREC will run
  • 0 and 90 snaps are taken (and xtal jpegs are
    saved)
  • Images fed to WebIce for analyses
  • Current crystal is unmounted, next crystal is
    mounted
  • Etc etc etc
  • The WebIce tab in BOS shows the results of auto
    indexing, resolution estimates and gives an
    overall score to the two images
  • The system works reliable
  • I have used it to screen about 6 pucks of real
    crystals myself
  • From my sofa

WebIce
  • WebIce allows you to view
  • the snapshots
  • the results of the analyses
  • From any where as long as you have an account
  • Your LDAP name and Password
  • Data are grouped in SILs

11
Communicating with the data base
  • How to populate the data base with your data?
  • Manual entry
  • Spreadsheet upload (under development)
  • Other External application
  • Extracting information from the data base
  • External application
  • Spreadsheet download
  • Issues
  • Spread sheet uniformity / standards

Conclusions Acknowledgements
  • Automation efforts in BOS are in a stage close to
    beta testing
