    Summary: SAXS is an experimental technique used to analyze the molecular structures of a wide variety of biological and non-biological samples in solution. Here I present a method for calculating electron density maps directly from solution scattering data. After introducing the approach, I will demonstrate a brief tutorial of the software DENSS (DENsity from Solution Scattering).
