Electron standard reconstruction sequence

The standard sequence to be executed is electronSequence, defined in Actually, this is a referenceing gsfElectronSequence, defined in, and the former is made of two modules:

gsfElectronSequence = cms.Sequence(gsfElectronCores*gsfElectrons)
The first module (gsfElectronCores) produces the GsfElectronCoreCollection while the second (gsfElectrons) the GsfElectronCollection.

Worth to note: the reconstruction of electron depends on previous execution of electronGsfTracking, defined in This tracking depends on mixed seeds coming from both egamma and particle-flow, this is why this sequence is not integrated in electron sequence, but defined by tracking and directly integrated into the reconstruction standard sequence. Whatsoever, the egamma subset of seeds is defined in, in the same directory as

Photon standard reconstruction sequence

The standard sequence to be executed is photonSequence:
photonSequence = cms.Sequence(photonCore+photons)
It is described in The first module (photonCore) produces the PhotonCoreCollection while the second (photons) the final PhotonCollection. The photonCore stores Ref to conevrsions. So in order for those reference to be corrected attached, the conversionSequence needs to be run prior to the photonSequence as is indeed done in the complete Egamma reco sequence (see

Conversion standard reconstruction sequence

The standard sequence to be executed is conversionSequence:
conversionSequence = cms.Sequence(ckfTracksFromConversions*conversions)
It is described in

Examples of reconstruction code

Examples on how to run the above sequences and details on the reconstruction algorithms can be found in: SWGuideElectronRecoSoftware and SWGuidePhotonReco respectively for Electrons and Photons.
