Our lab is an experimental lab but we frequently use computational methods to help analyze and interpret the experimental data. Below are some of the computing applications we have developed to calculate various properties of biological macromolecules.


HullRad is a computer program and webserver that calculates hydrodynamic properties of macromolecules from structure files.
It uses a convex hull representation of the molecule. The figure at left shows a bacterial 50s ribosomal subunit enclosed by the initial convex hull used by HullRad.


At left is the HullRad output for the ribosomal subunit shown above.
