We present a robust method to locate and continue period-doubling, saddle-node and symmetry-breaking bifurcations of periodically driven experimental systems. The method is illustrated from results obtained for an electronic implementation of a Duffing oscillator.
Automated model-building software aims at the objective interpretation of crystallographic diffraction data by means of the construction or completion of macromolecular models. Automated methods have rapidly gained in popularity as they are easy to use and generate reproducible and consistent results. However, the process of model building has become… (More)
Methods for automated identification and building of protein-bound ligands in electron-density maps are described. An error model of the geometrical features of the molecular structure of a ligand based on a lattice distribution of positional parameters is obtained via simulation and is used for the construction of an approximate likelihood scoring… (More)
The efficiency of the ligand-building module of ARP/wARP version 6.1 has been assessed through extensive tests on a large variety of protein-ligand complexes from the PDB, as available from the Uppsala Electron Density Server. Ligand building in ARP/wARP involves two main steps: automatic identification of the location of the ligand and the actual… (More)
A novel approach to obtaining structural information from macromolecular X-ray data extending to resolutions as low as 20 A is presented. Following a simple map-segmentation procedure, the approximate shapes of the domains forming the structure are identified. A pattern-recognition comparative analysis of these shapes and those derived from the structures… (More)
The integration of optical interconnects in printed circuit boards (PCB) is a rapidly growing field due to a continuously increasing demand for high data rates, along with a progressive miniaturization of devices and components. For high-speed data transfer, materials and integration concepts are searched for which enable high-speed short-range connections,… (More)
The Structural Proteomics In Europe (SPINE) consortium contained a workpackage to address the automated X-ray analysis of macromolecules. The aim of this workpackage was to increase the throughput of three-dimensional structures while maintaining the high quality of conventional analyses. SPINE was able to bring together developers of software with users… (More)
