HYDRO Suite of Computer Programs for Solution Properties of Rigid Macromolecules
The HYDRO suite is a collection of computer tools for predicting hydrodynamic and other solution properties from macromolecular structures and to gather structural information from such properties.
A collection of free-domain, user-friendly, and well-documented computer programs to predict properties from the three-dimensional shape of rigid particles, with various level of resolution, from very coarse-grained models to atomic level.
Hydrodynamic properties, like translational and rotational diffusion, intrinsic viscosities, relaxation times, and other properties like those related to scattering of radiation, e.g., the radius of gyration or the distribution of distances, are, in the case of rigid particles, directly determined from their size and shape and are therefore potential sources of information about their overall structures. Thus,...
