Biomathematics Seminar: Continuum techniques for protein identification
15 October 2013 14:00 in CM105
I shall discuss recent set of mathematical techniques developed to model structures composed of a large number of inter-linked helices as thin tubular electron densities. The aim is is develop techniques for identifying new protein hierarchies using medium/low resolution visualisation methods, such as small-angle x-ray scattering and fiber diffraction. This continuum modelling technique has the advantage for describing the structure using a reduced number of parameters whilst achieving the required resolution. I will cover the various useful features of this mathematical toolbox with the emphasis on how they could be applied in practice to actual physical data.
