XtalView is a complete package for solving a macromolecular crystal structure by isomorphous replacement, including building the molecular model. The xtalmgr, the main menu drives a suite of crystallographic modules by click of an icon. XtalView maintains log files of the computations done. Standard file formats are used, which facilitates communication between XtalView and programs such as X-PLOR, TNT, and MERLOT.
