Getting closer to making a “concensus SP-D LUT plot” from which to build an AI model

Getting closer to making a “concensus SP-D LUT plot” from which to build an AI model.

I had four SP-D dodecamers to work with, literally hundreds of plots, 5 different plot peak finding algorithms (apps, programs, websites), and a dozen different image processing programs, all to find the perfect peak plot for SP-D hexamers.  These molecules are bilaterally symmetrical (three identical x three identical) with the N term junction in the center.  Little is known about the central connections though the CRD and neck regions have molecular models.  Taken about 3 years to try to figure this out, input would have been (would still be) very valuable.

I am hopeful that an easy technique will be the outcome, that is an easy technique for assessing peaks in many different types of molecules (images from AFM at this point), particularly those which are bilaterally symmetrical.

Out of 7.7 billion people

Out of 7.7 billion people, I marvel that I have not found ONE single one with whom I can share my interests, not in gardening, mosaic, stained glass, polymer clay art, science, electron microscopy, pattern making, music, writing music, repairing old houses, making walkways with concrete.  You would think at least ONE person would be around to do these things with.  Dunno…  what are the odds.
