Introduction to UltraScan and UltraScan Data Analysis

Presenter: Borries Demeler, University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada and University of Montana

Introduction to UltraScan:

In this session, I will present an easy introduction into UltraScan, discuss the basic concepts underlying data analysis with UltraScan and help participants become familiar using a database backend for data management. I will go over the LIMS system and remote supercomputer analysis, and discuss the layout of UltraScan modules and data files, and review the data workflow when performing data analysis. Participants will learn how to commit data, perform the basic workflows for data processing if sedimentation velocity analysis, and use the supercomputer backend, utilize the reporting system, and manipulate data both locally and in the database. Participants will learn how to upload and edit absorbance, intensity, fluorescence and interference data, and how to retrieve data from the new Optima AUC. We will review the data manager and other utilities to help you access your data remotely from different computers and resume analysis from different sites.

This workshop will be presented on Sunday in sessions 3-6.

  • Workshop participants must bring a wifi capable laptop with the latest version of UltraScan installed on it, and registered a LIMS account in the UltraScan Demo LIMS instance.
