Description

Cryo-electron microscopy is a powerful technique to produce 3-dimensional images for large molecular complexes. When the resolution of 3-dimensional images is not sufficient to derive atomic structure directly from the image, it is still challenging to interpret the image. In order to model β-strands from medium-resolution images, we propose the use of Bézier surface iteratively to fit a β-sheet image. The proposed method shows improved accuracy in fitting when it was tested using eight cases.
