Supported Applications


  • Description

    computes the hydrodynamic properties of rigid macromolecules (proteins, small nucleic acids, macromolecular complexes, etc.) from their structure, as specified by the coordinates taken from a PDB file supplied by the user, from which the proper hydrodynamic model is built by the program itself.

  • Usage Notes

    The HYDROPRO calculation comprises the basic hydrodynamic properties: translational diffusion coefficient, sedimentation coefficient, intrinsic viscosity, and relaxation times, along with the radius of gyration.
