Many thanks to those who responded to the questions about
translational NCS. Because most answers have already been posted
on CCP4BB directly, it's probably unnecessary to make a lengthy
summary this time.
Bart Hazes answered the original questions perfectly - briefly it's
ok to use random selection. Others suggested to tweak crystals into
a smaller cell by using cryoprotectant (David Schuller, Clemens Vonrhein),
heavy atoms (Sundar), or reducing humidity (Shekhar Mande). As a super
bonus, the new crystal form often diffracted to much higher resolution.
Felix Vajdos suggested to use correlation coefficent rather than
R-factor and to study into the contributions of the weak reflections on
Thank you all very much,
