This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2018) Abstract SLDMOL is a program for modeling the 1-D scattering length density (SLD) profile of proteins at the lipid membrane–solution interface or adsorbed to other surfaces. The program reads experimental SLD data from neutron or X -ray reflectivity measurements and compares the results to a trajectory of protein structures, finding the conformation and orientation that best fits the experimental data. SLDMOL is a freely distributed open source program written in python that can be run independently u... Title of program: SLDMOL Catalogue Id: AETX_v1_0 Nature of problem Reflectivity is a powerful technique to study the conformation of biological molecules at surface and interfaces. Open source software that facilitates computational modeling and interpretation of experimental results in terms of detailed molecular structure is currently lacking.
