Audic S, Lopez F, Claverie JM, Poirot O, Abergel C(1997) SAmBA: an interactive software for optimizing the design of biological macromolecules crystallization experiments. Proteins 1997 Oct ;29(2):252-7. - PMID:9329089
You can interactively compute the experimental protocol corresponding to your combination of variables and states. By default, the software computes the minimal number of experiments required for a solution to be found, but this number can be increased.
A C version of the software (source files) is available for UNIX machines (SGI, SUN, IBM-PC under Linux) and for MS-DOS/MS-Windows machines. It can be retrieved here.
