Beckman Coulter is sponsoring a new educational webinar, “Advances in Sedimentation Analysis,” with Borries Demeler, which will highlight approaches used to extract more information from sedimentation velocity experiments. The webinar is free to attend and will be broadcast live April 16, 2015 at 8:00am PT.

In recent years, sophisticated new methods for sedimentation data analysis have opened up new avenues for leveraging AUC technology in a wide range of technology sectors, including life science research, pharmaceutical QC, material, polymer and nano science. In this talk, Borries Demeler will highlight some of the approaches used in his lab to extract ever more information from sedimentation velocity experiments. In this talk he will address ways of accurately characterizing systems at high resolution that are heterogeneous in both size and shape, and present methods for measuring the strength of macromolecular interactions by fitting discrete binding models to whole boundary sedimentation velocity experiments.

The speaker will be Borries Demeler, PhD, Director, Bioinformatics Core Facility, University of Texas Health Science Center. Dr. Demeler is part of the Biochemistry faculty at UTHSCSA and director for the Center for Analytical Ultracentrifugation of Macromolecular Assemblies (CAUMA). CAUMA is a premier service laboratory in the US open to any researcher investigating solution behavior of macromolecules, polymers, nanoparticles and assemblies. Securing multi-million dollar funding through NIH and NSF grants, Dr. Demeler created the most advanced AUC analysis software available today, called UltraScan. Dr. Demeler was the first to employ high-performance computing to maximize resolution, information content and increase throughput for AUC analysis. He has authored over 130 manuscripts and book chapters, about half of them on methods development for AUC. Dr. Demeler currently co-develops the XSEDE Science Gateway, a 5 million dollar NSF grant with Indiana University and San Diego Supercomputing Center to advance access to high-performance computing for AUC and a broad range of other science domains. He holds an annual AUC workshop in San Antonio where he teaches the foundation of hydrodynamics and mentors future AUC experts.

The webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 8:00am PDT, 11:00am EDT, 4:00pm GMT.
