Circular dichroism spectroscopy data analysis software tools
Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy is a technique that is widely used to detect protein conformation changes and to define protein secondary structures in solution (Nordén et al., 2010; Wallace and Janes, 2009). Synchrotron radiation circular dichroism (SRCD) spectroscopy is an advanced version of the technique that uses a synchrotron as its ultraviolet light source, to improve and extend the data quality (Wallace, 2009). These methods are basic tools for the characterization of proteins. Source text: Woollett et al., 2013.
