Detailed Description

A method for merging SAXS profiles using Gaussian processes.

saxs_merge

A method for merging SAXS profiles using Gaussian processes. Small-Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) is an experimental technique that allows gathering structural information on biomolecules in solution. High-quality SAXS profiles are usually obtained by manual merging of scattering profiles from different concentrations and exposure times.

SAXS Merge is a fully automated statistical method for merging SAXS profiles using Gaussian processes. This method requires only the buffer-subtracted profile files in a specific order. At the heart of its formulation is nonlinear interpolation using Gaussian Processes, which provide a statement of the problem that accounts for correlation in the data. The method is benchmarked.

A webserver is also available.
