For example, the input to a Patch CTF Estimation job are micrographs. Inputs for a job can come from the Workspace in which you are actively working, or any other Workspace within your current Project.

See All Job Types in cryoSPARC for detailed information about the inputs, parameters and outputs for each job type.

Drag and drop to connect

Connect the required input(s) by dragging and dropping the output(s) from another job.

If you have successfully connected the output(s), you will see the job number appear below the input, as well as an option to Remove if you have accidentally connected the wrong output:

CryoSPARC v2 populates default parameters for most jobs where necessary. To show additional parameters, toggle to Advanced Mode at the top right hand corner of the Job Builder:

All default parameters are indicated with a blue D. If you modify a parameter, it will be indicated with a green S. To restore the default value, click on the x to the right of the parameter you wish to restore.

Once satisfied that you have successfully dragged the required input(s) and modified any applicable parameters, click' Queue' to launch the job.
