DATA PROCESSING AND ANALYSIS
- MddNMR - a program
for processing of non-uniformly sampled (NUS) multidimensional
NMR spectra. The package contains also a routine to produce NUS
schedule that can be used to setup N-dimensional NUS NMR
experiments. Potentially any pulse sequence can be run in the
NUS mode. In the NUS acquisition, only a fraction of full
(conventional) data set is recorded. MddNMR works by
replenishing missing data points in the full matrix followed by
regular FT processing of the complete data.
- analysis tool for automatically determining the quantities of
molecules present in NMR spectroscopic data. The intended
purpose of TARQUIN is to aid the characterisation of
pathologies, in particular brain tumours, both non-invasively
with in-vivo 1H MRS and ex-vivo with 1H HR-MAS.

- matNMR is a highly flexible processing toolbox for NMR and EPR
spectra under MATLAB (all platforms). It can read in binary
FID's from most commercial spectrometers, process any 1D or 2D
spectrum and uses all graphical capabilities that MATLAB has to
offer. The program is fully GUI and at all times allows the user
to profit from MATLAB's numerical powers (courtesy of Jacco van
Beek, ETH Zurich).

(written in Fortran 77 for Silicon Graphics machines). ANSIG is
a program for viewing and assigning 2D, 3D and 4D NMR spectra
(both homonuclear and heteronuclear) of biological
macromolecules, mainly proteins. The input data for the program
are frequency-domain spectrum matrices, together with the
sequence of the protein. All processing (FT, LP, MEM, baseline
correction, and the like) of the spectral matrices must have
been done before ANSIG can be used to view the spectra (Courtesy
