Psocake is a software program designed for high throughput data reduction and analysis of free-electron laser experiments. Its serial crystallography graphical user interface allows browsing of detector images, Bragg peak finding with easy parameter tuning, generate region-of-interest masks, and crystal indexing. It was originally developed for use at the Linac Coherent Light Source, SLAC national accelerator laboratory and has been adopted for use at Pohang accelerator laboratory due to popular demand. We describe the features of psocake available at Pohang and include information about data management that we hope will be useful for users of the facility.
