Guided Data Capture (GDC) 5.0



Vladimir Diky, Robert D. Chirico, Robert N. Goldberg, Michael D. Frenkel


Guided Data Capture (GDC) 5.0 includes capture capabilities for biochemical substances and selected biothermodynamic properties. A key characteristic of data capture for much biothermodynamic data arises from the need to fully specify relatively complex reaction media (pH, pMg, buffer components, reaction cofactors, etc.) Some of these may be captured as ?variables? (for example, the solubility of a substance as a function of pH). GDC is designed for the capture of four common types of biothermodynamic data; (1) properties of enzyme catalyzed reactions, (2) interaction properties derived from titration calorimetry, (3) properties determined with differential scanning calorimetry (DSC methods), and (4)solubilities in complex media
