Aim
This EPSRC funded project aimed to develop a general method for applying Genetic Algorithms (GA) to the process of identifying the location and strength of intensity peaks in Bragg reflections in X-ray diffraction images of semi-crystalline structures such as collagen. A more in depth description of the project and an indication of some of the results are available here.

People
The project was a collaboration between Prof. Tim Wess at the University of Cardiff and Dr Graeme Cameron and Dr David Cairns from the University of Stirling. The original inspiration and motivation for this project was provided by Prof. Andrew Miller from the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
