PFT3DR (PFT2/EM3DR2) is programs for computing three-dimensional reconstructions from two-dimensional projections of 3D objects. The two programs were developed for three-dimensional electron microscopy–particularly biological macromolecules imaged by cryogenic electron microscopy. PFT2 is used to determine orientations and origins of imaged particles. EM3DR2 is used to compute three-dimensional reconstructions based on the orientation and origin parameters determined by PFT2 or other programs.

Orientations and origins for windowed particles were determined via a modified version of the PFT algorithm (Baker and Cheng, 1996) altered to use both phase and amplitude information in orientation selection and to use non-icosahedral symmetries (Sanz-García et al., 2010).
