A number of crystallographic laboratories have adapted ORTEP to meet their specific needs. For the convenience of ORTEP users who may have similar specialization requirements, we maintain a list of contacts for such systems, which we call "ORTEP Kin" since in our neck of the woods, family members are called kinfolk. The ORTEP Kin list is currently divided into groups according to the type of modification made such as graphical user interfaces, preprocessing programs to generate ORTEP instruction sets, and larger integrated systems that include ORTEP.
We do not plan to make such modifications to the standard ORTEP we distribute since specializations tend to restrict portability and versatility. However, we actively encourage others to enhance ORTEP and distribute ORTEP kin. We can not respond to ORTEP kin problem reports.
Please send additions, corrections, and comments on this list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
