MRC

MRC may refer to:

MRC (file format)

MRC is a file format for electron density that has become industry standard in Cryo-electron microscopy, where the result of the technique is a three-dimensional grid of voxels each with a value corresponding to density of electrons (see wave function). It was developed by the MRC ( Medical Research Council) Laboratory of Molecular Biology.

The MRC format is supported by almost every molecular graphics suite that supports volumetric data. The major packages include:

  • Visual molecular dynamics
  • UCSF Chimera
  • IMOD (software)
