Phaser is a program for phasing macromolecular crystal structures with maximum likelihood methods. It has been developed by Randy Read's group at the University of Cambridge and is available through the Phenix and CCP4 software suites, and directly from this site.
Users are invited to contribute to the User Stories section of this wiki. If you have managed to solve a difficult crystallographic problem with Phaser, please consider writing a summary of your structure solution here.
