Quantifying the local resolution of #cryoEM density maps

QT:{{”
We propose a mathematical theory and an efficient algorithm for measuring local resolution that address all of the above limitations. The theory (Online Methods) is based on the following idea: a λ-Å feature exists at a point in the volume if a three-dimensional (3D) local sinusoid of wavelength λ is statistically detectable above noise at that point. A likelihood-ratio hypothesis test of the local sinusoid versus noise can detect this feature at a given P value (typically P = 0.05). We define the local resolution at a point as the smallest λ at which the local sinusoid is detectable, and we account for multiple testing with an FDR procedure.
