RE: [ccp4bb]: statistics

Hi. Just to specify...I've already tried (before writing to ccp4)to search
the pdb. The problems are:
-statistics is incomplete, because not necessarily the method of solution
-sometimes acronyms of methods such as MAd or SAD or MIR are used in the
header to describe something else (eg SAD in a work of 1980, was clearly
something else...I've checked and it was part of the molecule name).
So, basically I was asking for something more reliable and complete.
Thanks anyway to those who answered.
And if anyone has some other idea (or a reference to review paper...)...it
will be wellcome.
