Please tune in to hear Willy Wriggers from biomachina.org in the first of two webinars. This first presentation will focus on his software tool "Combining Structures from Different Biophysical Origins with SITUS". SITUS is a program package for modeling atomic resolution structures into low-resolution density maps. Join the webinar on Tuesday, October 4th.
Combining Structures from Different Biophysical Origins with Situs
Professor, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering - Old Dominion University
Host: Jason Key
Situs is a command-line batch processing program package for the modeling of atomic resolution structures into 3D density maps e.g. from electron microscopy, tomography, or small angle X-ray scattering. The fully scriptable software supports both rigid-body and flexible docking using a variety of fitting strategies, and it includes also a variety of general-purpose tools for converting, inspecting, and processing of volumetric maps. Situs has been developed and updated since 1998.
For more information on SITUS, see the main website: http://situs.biomachina.org/, view these tutorials, or read these publications.
Join us again on November 1st when Dr. Wriggers will introduce us to Sculptor, a GUI-based extension of the Situs docking programs to allow an interactive exploration and analysis of volumetric maps.
