Simple simulator for proteins
|Reported by:||srkline||Owned by:||srkline|
For proteins, they are not necessarily a "sphere", but the user may know a reasonable Rg value to expect. So can we make a simulator (or a function) that will allow inputs of: concentration (mg/ml), Rg (or MW in kDa) and a solvent composition. We might be able to assume a "typical" SLD of the protein, and then a background based on the solvent composition. Then there should be enough to do a simulation of the scattering (how do I simulate the solvent scattering??) and get a realistic idea of how many counts you get above background -- and what the subtraction would look like for a given counting time.
