US-SOMO Hydrodynamic Modelling

UltraScan Solution Modeler Hydrodynamic Modelling Workshop

Presenters: Emre Brookes, University of Montana, USA, and Mattia Rocco, IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino, Genova, Italy


The UltraScan Solution Modeler (US-SOMO) has, in addition to hydrodynamic parameter calculation from structure, native and wrapped tools for computation of solution small angle scattering data from biomacromolecules (BioSAS), processing of BioSAS data and comparison of simulated data against experimental data. US-SOMO also contains powerful tools for the analysis of size exclusion coupled small angle X-ray scattering (SEC-SAXS) data. In this three session workshop, we will begin with an introduction to BioSAS. This will begin with an overview of the basics of BioSAS and its importance to the researcher. Next, during the frist session, we will introduce the attendees to the available BioSAS tools within US-SOMO. In the second sessions, the attendees will work through hands-on exercices using US-SOMO with a focus on the SEC-SAXS tools. In the final session, we will continue with additional example data sets and offer to look at any user supplied data.

It is suggested that attendees attend at least any prior sessions of this three session workshop, as earlier material will not be covered again. Additionally, registered attendees will receive instructions to install the software in the week prior to the workshop. We will provide support to resolve any issues during this time. This workshop will be presented as three sessions on Sunday from 11:30-13:30, 14:30-16:30 and 17:00-19:00 (sessions 4-6).
