BioSAS: Advanced Applications
October 7, 2018 (Sunday before SAS2018 conference)
Solution small-angle x-ray and neutron scattering methods are having an increasing impact in structural biology largely due to advanced hardware, data analysis and modeling. The objective of this “BioSAS: Advanced Applications” course is to give users hands-on practical experience with a variety of software tools that provide powerful capabilities for processing, analyzing and modeling BioSAS experimental data. This course will introduce participants to advanced analysis techniques such as deconvolving SEC-SAS data sets and utilizing molecular dynamics in combination with SAS curve fitting. The software used will include the BioXTAS RAW, SASSIE-web and US-SOMO software suites. The instructors are Emre Brookes (UTHSCSA), Joseph Curtis (NIST), Jesse Hopkins (BioCAT, APS), Richard Gillilan (MacCHESS), Susan Krueger (NIST), Mattia Rocco (HSanMartino, Italy) and other available staff. Participants should bring their own laptop computers to complete the hands-on exercises. This workshop is complementary to the Beyond Rg BioSAXS Data Analysis course, and will cover advanced techniques not in that course. It assumes participants are already familiar with basic SAS data analysis methods.
